Fans of Amy Winehouse staged an impromptu street party outside her house in Camden Square, London, during the evening following the soul singer's funeral (July 26).

Gathering in the road, surrounded by hundreds of floral tributes, as well as fan art, bottles of alcohol and lit tea lights, fans danced to songs from her 2003 debut 'Frank', as well as the multi-Grammy Award winning 'Back To Black', released in 2006.

The songs blasted out from a stereo in a parked car as people sang and yelled along to 'Tears Dry On Their Own', 'Stronger Than Me', 'Fuck Me Pumps' and her version of The Zutons' 'Valerie', while sipping from cans of beer and bottles of cider and chanting the late singer's name.

A lone security guard stood by the gate to her home, where the lights were on and a window open. Candles were seen flickering in a room on the top floor of the house.

Amy Winehouse's funeral was held earlier in the day at Edgwarebury cemetery, and her body was then cremated at Golders Green crematorium before her family headed to Schindler Hall in Southgate for shiva, the traditional Jewish mourning period. Winehouse's 'Back To Black' producer Mark Ronson and close friend Kelly Osbourne were in attendance at the funeral.

The cause of the singer's death is still unknown. The results of post-mortem toxicology reports are expected to be revealed within the next two to four weeks.
