Thieves Steal Amy Winehouse Street Signs
Camden Council is begging for the signs to be returned…
Camden Council said it had planned to give the street signs to Amy’s family and have launched an amnesty for their safe return.
Council deputy Sue Vincent said that if the signs were handed in, no further action would be taken. “We are appealing to the good nature and conscience of the person or persons who stole the signs and are asking for them to be returned.
“We are not concerned with who took them, and will not be investigating this if we get them back. The signs can be returned to any police station in Camden and no questions will be asked.”
A spokesperson for Amy’s family said they were saddened by the theft. “The people gathering there and all of the memorials, they really made a difference to her parents Mitch and Janis,” he said. “It's sad that the signs have been taken.”
Of course, the square will need new signs which the council said could take up to six weeks; it is likely they will also be covered with tributes to the Back To Black singer. There have also been early discussions about a permanent tribute to Camden’s finest in the borough.
As previously reported on MTV, the Rehab star's house could be turned into headquarters for the new Amy Winehouse charity as her family believe it is too previous to sell.
