Peaches Geldof, the daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, has been found dead at the age of 25.

Police were called to her home in Wrotham, Kent, today where her body was discovered.

Bob Geldof said: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain."

Ms Geldof, a mother of two, was a prolific tweeter and the final message that she sent yesterday was a picture of her as a child with her mother with the message "Me and my mum".

Ms Geldof was twice married and her second husband is musician Tom Cohen.

Bob Geldof said: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain.

"She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.

"Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?

"We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is.

"Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken."

The statement was signed Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof.

Ms Geldof's husband Tom Cohen said: "My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever."

Ms Geldof was a young girl when her mother died tragically from an overdose in 2000 after splitting with Bob Geldof and forming a relationship with INXS frontman Michael Hutchence. Hutchence died in 1997.

Kent Police said: "Police were called at 1.35pm on 7 April 2014 to an address near Wrotham following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman. A woman aged 25 was pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service.

"At this stage, the death is being treated as an unexplained sudden death. Officers are working to establish the circumstances around the death."

Sky news last night quoted 'SKY news sources' - which was the BBC News 5 minutes earlier - and said PG was famous for 'going out'.

Tragic news but the SKY reporting was sickeningly funny with how bad it was.

She was writing for the telegraph at fourteen years of age. Sky needs to do some research.
