    A coroner has ruled that Amy Winehouse's death was due to "misadventure".

    An inquest, which took place in Camden today, heard that the singer had been drinking on the day she died. Coroner Suzanne Greenaway gave her verdict on the basis that Ms Winehouse had chosen to consume alcohol and risked the consequences.

    The inquest heard that the star had more than five times the amount of alcohol in her system than is legally allowed for driving.

    She had been sober for a few weeks but had started drinking again on the Friday before she died. She had 416mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood in her system.

    She was checked at 10am on Saturday morning by her security guard, who belived she was asleep, but he discovered that she had not moved when he returned five hours later and called an ambulance.

    An earlier inquest report said that the 27-year-old singer had no illegal substances in her system when she died.
