Amy Winehouse - North London road to be named after Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse is set to have a road named after her.

There are already a number of tributes being planned to the late singer - who tragically died in July 2011 aged just 27 - and her father Mitch has revealed residents of the King's Cross area in London have been asked to suggest street names for a new housing development close to Camden, where Amy used to live.

Mitch told The Sun newspaper: ''To think that our surname would be indelibly linked with London through the naming of a street after Amy is remarkable.

''We are a London family through and through and it would be a tremendous honour if we dobecome a literal part of the fabric of this great city.''

The ´Rehab´ singer´s fans have already eagerly submitted Winehouse Street as an idea for the road name and Winehouse Way has also been suggested.

Other famous figures being considered for the street include Charles Dickens, who wrote about part of the town and Frankenstein author Mary Shelley who was born there.

Mitch - who has set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation since her untimely death to help people with drug and alcohol addictions - is busy working on a statue of her to be erected in Camden and the star´s family confirmed earlier this week there will be a documentary made about her life.
