The dresses worth £130,000 were due to be auctioned for charity.

Two of Amy Winehouse‘s dresses worth £130,000 have been stolen from her old home in London.

The late Back To Black singer’s father Mitch has revealed that two of her old dresses – including the wedding gown she wore in 2006 – were stolen from the North London property in which she tragically died in July 2011 at the age of 27.

Both dresses were due to be auctioned in New York later this year to raise money for the family’s charity The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which funds a range of charities including children’s hospices and drug counselling services.

Mitch Winehouse told The Sun newspaper: “It’s a blow. It’s sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value.”
