Amy Winehouse's father Mitch has expressed his anger that an error has meant that the inquest into his daughter's death will be reopened.

As reported earlier this week, the inquest into Winehouse's death will be reopened after it was revealed that deputy assistant coroner Suzanne Greenaway was unqualified to hold the position, making the verdict of death by misadventure invalid.

Mitch Winehouse spoke of his anger to the Standard, saying: "There have been so many cock-ups. Firstly the coroner’s report was sent to the wrong house up the road from Janis (Winehouse, Amy's mother) and the bloke who received it tried to sell it."

"Then this cock-up with the chief coroner putting his wife in charge, though she wasn’t qualified. I’m not putting my family through it again. Right now I’d say I won’t go. And the result will be just the same."

Suzanne Greenaway had been appointed by coroner husband Andrew Reid. Both have subsequently resigned and a new inquest is to be held at St Pancras' coroners court next month.
