    Amy Winehouse's funeral has been held in North London.

    Friends and family of the 27-year-old singer attended a private funeral service at Edgwarebury Jewish cemetery on Tuesday lunchtime.

    During the ceremony Ms Winehouse's father Mitch addressed those gathered and said: "Goodnight my angel, sleep tight."

    The service was conducted by Rabbi Frank Hellner, emeritus rabbi at Finchley Progressive Synagogue.

    So Far Away, a song by Carol King and one of the singer's favourites, was played after the service.

    Marc Ronson, who described Ms Winehouse as "like a sister" to him, was among the attendees.

    Kelly Osbourne was also present, wearing her hair in a beehive in tribute to the star's iconic look.

    Fans and photographers surrounded the cemetery as well.

    It is understood that the service was followed by a cremation at the Golders Green Crematorium in Hoop Lane. The family are also expected to sit shiva for at least two nights.
