Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch, announced plans for a charity to be set up for addicts at the late singer’s funeral yesterday.

“I was in New York with my cousin Michael when I heard [of her death], and straight away I said I wanted an Amy Winehouse Foundation, something to help the things she loved – children, horses, but also to help those struggling with substance abuse," the grieving father told mourners at the funeral. “In this country, if you cannot afford a private rehabilitation clinic, there is a two-year waiting list for help. With the help of Keith Vaz MP, we are trying to change that.”

The singer, who passed away during the weekend, was involved with a number of charities.
