Amy Winehouse and her husband have spent the night in a Norwegian jail after being caught with cannabis.

The couple were detained along with a third person at a hotel in the city of Bergen yesterday following a tip-off to the police.

The authorities say they were caught with seven grams of cannabis and were released this morning after paying a €500 fine (£350).

Prosecutor Lars Morten Lothe said Winehouse, her husband Blake Fielder-Civil and a third person were released at around 6am today.

They were arrested shortly after 5pm at a hotel in Bergen in south west Norway after a tip to the police.

"They were found with seven grams of marijuana," Lothe said.

"She's paid the fine, so this thing is over for us now," he said.

Winehouse is due to perform in Bergen tonight and in Oslo on Saturday.

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
