Amy Winehouse is to be buried today at a private ceremony in London.

Her family were given permission to go ahead with the funeral arrangements following a post-mortem examination.

The Jewish singer’s parents have said they want to give their daughter a Jewish burial. It is understood to be taking place at Hoop Lane cemetery in Golders Green.

Mitch Winehouse, who visited his daughter’s Camden home on Monday with his ex-wife Janis, said he was touched by the support of fans who have kept a vigil there.

"I can't tell you what this means to us," he said.
