The private funeral service of Peaches Geldof has taken place at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in the village of Davington, near Faversham in Kent. 

The church was where the 25-year-old mother-of-two married husband Thomas Cohen in 2012, and is also where the funeral of her mother, Paula Yates, took place in 2000.

The church is next to her father Bob Geldof's country estate and dozens of locals gathered at the entrance to leave bouquets of flowers and cards in memory of the late columnist and model.

Among the mourners offering support to her family were Kate Moss, Sarah Ferguson, Jools Holland, Nick Grimshaw, Bill Wyman and Jo Wood.

On April 7, Peaches Geldof's body was found at her home in Kent, after officers were called "following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman". 

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

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