The Grammy winning singer was held and questioned by police for over nine hours yesterday after she handed herself in at an East London police station. Scotland Yard said that the arrest was in connection with a video from January that appeared to show Winehouse smoking crack cocaine. She was also allegedly shown snorting Ecstasy and cocaine and admitting to having taken six Valium. The footage was obtained by The Sun and stills from the video were published in the newspaper. Winehouse has not been charged.

Scotland Yard released the following statement yesterday: "Around 1pm today a 24-year-old woman from the Camden area attended a London police station by arrangement and was arrested in connection with the alleged possession of a controlled drug. She remains in custody." Today a spokeswoman said today that the 24-year-old woman, based in Camden, north London, was released on bail until later this month pending further inquiries.
