Bob Geldof mourns daughter Peaches
(04-08 10:58)

Live Aid founder Bob Geldof said his family was “beyond pain'' at the death of his socialite daughter Peaches at the age of 25 on Monday.
Police were called to her secluded home outside Wrotham in Kent, southeast England, but she was pronounced dead at the scene. Her death was being treated as “unexplained and sudden'' but non-suspicious, police said.
Peaches, a mother of two young sons herself, was just 11 when her mother, television presenter Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose aged 41 in 2000.
In her last Twitter message to her 190,000 followers on Sunday, Peaches posted a photograph of her as a baby being held by her mother, with the words, “Me and my mum.’’
Her father Bob, who put together a huge live rock show in 1985 to raise money for the Ethiopian famine, said of his second daughter: “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.''—AFP
