Dad Mitch speaks out...

Amy Winehouse's family have spoken out after news that the verdict on the 'Back To Black' stars death could be declared illegal.

As reported yesterday, there was a mix up with the coroners leading the investigation into what killed Amy last year. It appears that the assistant hired by the head coroner did not have the amount of legally required experience to be part of the team.

Speaking to The Sun, Mitch Winehouse expressed his shock at the news: "We were very shocked when we were informed the coroner was not suitably qualified. It's hard to believe her credentials weren't fully checked. You'd assume this sort of thing can't happen."

Adding: "We've been informed the coroner was taking guidance from more experienced professionals and the verdict doesn't appear to be in any doubt, but it's upsetting to have to go through all this again. We just hope that matters can be resolved soon."

The verdict into Winehouse's death ruled that 'misadventure' killed the 27 year old last year.
