Peaches Geldof inquest expected to return heroin overdose verdict

The inquest into Peaches Geldof's death is expected to reveal that she died of a heroin overdose.

It has been widely reported that the findings from the inquest will be made public later today (May 1).

The Times state that the inquest will show that the 25-year-old media personality and daughter of Bob Geldof, who was found dead on April 7 at an address in Kent, died from a heroin overdose.

The news would be a tragic mirror to Geldof's mother Paula Yates, who died of an accidental heroin overdose in 2000.

Geldof's body had its post-mortem two days after her death, but police confirmed that its results came back inconclusive.

They added at the time that results from toxicology tests would take "several weeks" to come back.

The death was being treated as "non-suspicious but unexplained and sudden".

Geldof is survived by husband Thomas Cohen and sons Astala, one, and Phaedra, who will turn one on April 24.
