Peaches Geldof's Instagram page has been closed down, following her tragic passing at the age of 25 on Monday afternoon.

The star regularly updated the page with pictures of herself and her two young sons, and the day before she died uploaded a picture to it which showed herself as a child, posing with her mum Paula Yates, who died of a heroin overdose when Peaches was just 11 years old.

However where her Instagram account once was, there is now just an error message stating: "This page could not be found. You might have followed an incorrect link."

Metro are reporting that the page was closed down at the request of her family, although her Twitter page is currently still online.

A spokesperson for Instagram told the Metro that they couldn't comment on specific cases, but did say: "When a person passes away, we do honour requests from close family members to deactivate their Instagram account, which removes the profile and associated information from the site."

Peaches's sister Fifi posted a tribute to her younger sister on her own Instagram page and many of her celebrity friends have expressed their own shock and grief at her passing on their Twitter pages.

A post-mortem investigation on Wednesday afternoon into what could have caused the star's untimely passing proved inconclusive. Police are now waiting on the results of a toxicology report, which could take several weeks.

Kent Police have previously said that despite the "unexplained and sudden" nature of the star's death, they are not currently treating the case as "suspicious".
