Singer Amy Winehouse has been treated for dehydration in St Lucia after fainting, her spokesman has confirmed.

The 25-year-old spent a night in hospital for observation after collapsing at her home.

Winehouse, who has been holidaying on the Caribbean island, had apparently been "running around" with a group of children before she fainted.

Her UK spokesman said doctors told her that "she was dehydrated and needed to drink more water".

Winehouse is due to play the St Lucia jazz festival later this week.

It has also emerged that Winehouse has obtained a court injunction stopping members of the paparazzi taking photographs outside her north London home.

Her spokesman confirmed that a copy of the order, understood to bar photographers from following or approaching her within 100 metres of the house, has been put up at the property in Enfield.
