The funeral for Peaches Geldof has taken place in Kent.

The service was held at the same church where the funeral of her mother Paula Yates was held.

The church, in the village of Davington, near Faversham is also where the 25-year-old married musician Tom Cohen, the father of her children, in 2012.

And it is also where television presenter Yates, who died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41, married Bob Geldof in 1986.

The Geldof family said the service would be private.

A hearse carrying Peaches' coffin drew into the Davington Priory estate just before 1pm.

The coffin was painted sky blue, with clouds and flowers along the side and a picture of the Geldof family at the back.

Supermodel Kate Moss, musician and television personality Jools Holland, former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman and BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show presenter Nick Grimshaw are in attendance.

Also there to pay their respects were journalist Mariella Frostrup and model and television personality Jo Wood.

Ms Geldof’s body was found on 7 April at the home she shared with her husband and their two young sons, Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra, in Wrotham, Kent, after officers were called "following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman".

Former Boomtown Rats singer Geldof paid tribute to his daughter alongside his partner Jeanne Marine, and Ms Geldof's sisters Fifi Trixibelle, Pixie and Tiger, saying she was the "wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us".

Kent Police said it was being treated as a "non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death".

An inquest is not expected to be opened and adjourned by the coroner until after the results of toxicology tests are known.
