It's never easy reporting on someone passing, but it's with great sadness to hear that Amy Winehouse has passed away, aged just 27.

Sky News reported this earlier:

Officers were called by the ambulance service to an address in NW1 just after 4pm today. "On arrival, officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene," a police statement said.

Her death is being treated as unexplained and inquiries are continuing into the circumstances, it added.

Another great talent lost. Our thoughts are with her family.
