Police post Amy Winehouse death file to stranger not family

A report about the death of singer Amy Winehouse meant for the star’s family was posted to a complete stranger by mistake.

The Met police has confirmed the blunder after the document was handed in to a police station in north London.

"Police were informed that material relating to a forthcoming inquest may have been delivered to an incorrect address," a spokesman said.

"Inquiries are now under way to establish the full circumstances of this matter."

The file sets out the details of the 27-year-old’s death on July 23.

Winehouse died at her home in Camden, north London, after a well-publicised battle with drink and drugs.

But no traces of illegal substances were found in her system by a toxicology test.
