Amy Winehouse's home in Camden, north London, has been sold for £1.98 million.

The three bedroom semi in Camden Square was sold at auction to a "couple in their 40s" reports The Sun.

The house had been listed on the open market for £2.8 million, but failed to sell. After the auction, Amy's father Mitch Winehouse said of the property: "We are sorry to see it go."

Amy Winehouse was found dead in the house last summer. She died of alcohol poisoning.

A statue of the late singer is to be erected in Camden. It will be unveiled at an all-star tribute concert at The Roundhouse on September 14, 2014, which would have been the star's 31st birthday.

Pete Doherty recently told the Daily Mail that he and Amy Winehouse were once lovers, but said that their relationship ended sourly.

He said: "This is difficult for me to admit. But, yes, it's true. Amy and I were lovers. I loved her then and, well, I still do today."

He continued: "But towards the end, as only lovers can, she became quite mean and cruel to me. She didn't suffer fools… and believe me, she had a mean right hook."
