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.
