London - Peaches Geldof's body has been released to her family.

The remains of the 25-year-old TV personality, who was found dead at her home in Kent, South East England, on Monday, have been released to her loved-ones to allow for funeral arrangements to commence.

A spokesman for North West Kent coroner Roger Hatch said: "We can confirm that the body has been released to the family for funeral arrangements to be made."

Peaches is expected to be laid to rest at the country church of St Mary Magdalene in Kent, South East England, where her late mother Paula Yates was buried in 2000.

The blonde beauty - who leaves behind her husband Thomas Cohen and their sons Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months - was also married and christened at the church.

A source said previously: "The church holds the most bittersweet of memories for the Geldof family. They have had the best of times and the worst of times in that churchyard."

A post-mortem carried out on Wednesday proved to be "inconclusive" and her family - including sisters Fifi, 31, Pixie, 23, and Tiger-Lily, 17 - will now have an agonising wait for a toxicology report, which could take up to several weeks.

Police have so far described her tragic death as "sudden and unexplained", but non-suspicious as there were no drugs or a suicide note found at her home.

A decision on whether an inquest should be held will depend on the results of the examination.
