Peaches Geldof: Post-Mortem To Be Carried Out

The family of Peaches Geldof could find out later how she died when a post-mortem examination begins.

The body of the 25-year-old was found at her home in Wrotham, Kent, on Monday.

The sudden death of the mother-of-two, who had worked as a DJ, model and television personality, is being treated as unexplained, but not suspicious.

Her elder sister Fifi Trixibelle Geldof posted a photo online of the two of them together when they were children, with the message: ''My beautiful baby sister.... Gone but never forgotten. I love you Peaches x.''

A tribute released by her father, Sir Bob, said the family was suffering "beyond pain".

In her last message on Twitter, Ms Geldof posted a picture of her as a child with her mother, Paula Yates, who died of a heroin overdose in 2000 when Peaches was 11.

Police said officers were called to her house "following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman".

A spokesman said: "Officers are working to establish the circumstances and will be compiling a report of their findings for the coroner."

A Kent County Council spokesman said Ms Geldof's body had been transferred to Darent Valley Hospital, Dartford, where the post-mortem examination will take place.

A coroner will open an investigation after the results of the initial post-mortem examination have been received.

A decision on whether to hold an inquest will be made depending on the final results of the post-mortem, which could take several weeks.
