Planning to build monument for Amy Winehouse

Amy Wine house could be commemorated in a life-size figurine statue in a place close to her residence.

Plans are being measured for the singer, who died in her Camden Town house last year, to be keep in minded with a monument at the Roundhouse.

A spokesman for the venue said: "We think it's important that Amy's contribution to music is recognized in Camden, but the idea is in its early stages of development at the moment."

The Back To Black star, who was found dead after a lengthy and very public battle with drink and drugs, was a well-known face on the Camden music scene.

Her father Mitch told the Camden New Journal: "It will be bronze, life-size, and on the first-floor balcony next to the Roundhouse bar. What we'd like to have is Amy leaning over the balcony and looking, and perhaps pointing, towards Camden Town from Chalk Farm Road."

Her home was recently put up for sale by the family for £2.7 million.
