Media scrum greets Winehouse ahead of assault trial
Singer Amy Winehouse was greeted by a huge press scrum today as she arrived for her trial for an alleged assault on a woman at a charity ball.
She gasped as she stepped out of a black people carrier to be confronted by more than 60 photographers outside the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London.
The singer, wearing a smart grey suit, was accompanied into the building by a number of personal security staff.
At an earlier hearing, the 25-year-old pleaded not guilty to the charge that she attacked Sherene Flash in Berkeley Square, central London, last September.
Winehouse, who had performed at the ball before she is alleged to have assaulted Ms Flash, gave her name as Amy Jade Civil at the March hearing.
She has recently returned to the UK following an extended break in St Lucia.
Winehouse was divorced from her estranged husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, earlier this month.
