A life-sized statue of Amy Winehouse was unveiled in London yesterday as a tribute to the late singer.

Fans of Amy Winehouse gathered yesterday to get a glimpse of the new statue on the day that would have been her 31st birthday. Stables Market in Camden, one of the singer's favourite places to go in the city, is where fans can now come to pay their respects to Winehouse, who died in 2011. 

Amy's parents, both Mitch and Janis Winehouse, were on hand at the event, along with actress Barbara Windsor, who was a close friend of the late singer's and chosen to be the one to reveal the statue to those who had traveled from far and wide to be in attendance.

The sculptor, Scott Eaton, said that he made the piece after consultation with Amy's father Mitch, and told The Guardian that he hoped it was "reflective and contemplative".
