Peaches Geldof’s body has been released to her family, who can now begin making funeral arrangements.

Peaches was found dead at her home in Kent, which she shared with husband Thomas Cohen and their two children, on Monday and police have said that they are treating her death as a “non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death”.

The news that her body has been released comes as it emerged that a post-mortem carried out at Darent Valley Hospital proved “inconclusive”. Toxicology reports could take up to three weeks.

Kent council have previously stated that their decision as to whether there needs to be an investigation into Peaches’ death “depends upon the final results of the post-mortem”.

Any inquest is not expected to be opened until the results of the toxicology tests are known.

Bob Geldof has led tributes to his daughter, describing her as “the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of us all” in a touching tribute.

Her husband, musician Thomas Cohen, said his wife was adored by him and their two sons Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra, who he will bring up “with their mother in their hearts every day”.

Peaches’ elder sister Fifi posted a childhood snap on Instagram with the caption ''My beautiful baby sister... Gone but never forgotten. I love you Peaches x.'' and celebrities including Lily Allen have shared their condolences online.

Peaches’ Instagram account was shut down on Wednesday 9 April with the company telling Metro: "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."
