Family pay tribute to tragic Amy Winehouse on anniversary

To mark the event, the family will be spending the day together, remembering a daughter and sister that meant the world to them.

Amy Winehouse’s family said they will be thinking of "a daughter and sister that meant the world to them" as they mark the first anniversary of the singer’s death today.

And they said they were still "struggling to come to terms" with her death a year on.

The singer was found dead from alcohol poisoning in her north London home on July 23 last year at the age of 27.

In a message from her family, posted to the website set up in her name, they said: "To mark the event, the family will be spending the day together, remembering a daughter and sister that meant the world to them.

"Whilst the world remembers a gifted artist who was taken from us all at a ridiculously young age, we will be thinking of a person who gave so much, and in turn was given so much, by a family still struggling to come to terms with the fact that, where there should be four, there is only three."

They thanked fans for their sympathy and support over the past year and said they hoped "we have been able to contribute to a positive legacy in Amy’s name".
