THE cause of Peaches Geldof's death remains unknown after a post-mortem proved inconclusive pending the results of toxicology tests.

Kent Police said officers are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the 25-year-old's death and a toxicology report could take several weeks. The body of the mother-of-two was found at her home in Kent, on Monday after police were called "following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman".

Police have said the case is being treated as a "non-suspicious, unexplained, sudden death". A coroner is expected to open an inquest into her death following the results of the post-mortem.

Ms Geldof, the daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host.

In a column for 'Mother and Baby' magazine, published the day after her death, Geldof wrote that motherhood had made her "happier than ever". "Right now life is good. And being a mum is the best part of it."
