London: A life-size statue of singer Amy Winehouse is set to be placed near her Camden home, where she breathed her last, after the local council approved the plans.
The statue is expected to be erected on the balcony of the Roundhouse music venue around September despite objections from some conservationists, who think it is too early for a memorial, reported Digital Spy.
The statue will see the singing sensation in a short dress with her trademark beehive hairstyle.
Winehouse was found dead at her home on July 23, 2011 at the age of 27. Her death was ruled as misadventure by accidental alcohol poisoning at a coroner`s inquest.
