Winehouse's father gives her clothing to fans


Amy Winehouse's father handed out items of her clothing to fans gathered outside her home in north London yesterday.

Mitch Winehouse was among family and friends of the singer who came to remove possessions from her home in Camden. The singer, who had struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, was found dead from unknown causes at her home on Saturday. She was 27.

Two days after her funeral, dozens of mourners continued to gather outside her home, leaving flowers and taking photos. Since her death, sales of the singer's music have soared on both sides of the Atlantic .
