Amy Winehouse: Camden Square road signs stolen by fans
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 3, 2011
by RICHARD OSLEY
FOUR road signs daubed with tributes to singer Amy Winehouse have been stolen from the Camden Town street where she lived.
Souvenir seekers are thought to have pinched the nameplates in Camden Square this week. Camden had planned to give all of the road signs to Ms Winehouse's family due to the mass of unique tribute messages left on them.
Those that remain in place will be dismantled and given to her parents.
Ms Winehouse was found dead at her home in Camden Square ten days ago.
The council will install new road signs, at a cost of £250 each, within the next six weeks. Discussions are ongoing about how to counter the possibility of them being marked again.

I was at work and heard about this, made me disgusted. Do you know which of the Camden Square signs remained after the thieves? I wrote a message on the one opposite her house, I remember there being a handprint outline on it and not much else at the time.
