Police investigating the death of Peaches Geldof have confirmed that drug paraphernalia was found at her house.

At the inquest into the 25-year-old's deathomn Thursday, the results of a toxicology test revealed that the TV personality had taken heroin.

It had earlier been reported that no drug taking paraphernalia was found at the Kent house where the mother of two lived with her husband, fuelling speculation that the scene of her death had "been tampered with".

While police have launched an enquiry to establish who supplied Peaches Geldof with the fatal class A drug, they have also sought to correct the earlier media reports.

In a statement, DCI Paul Fortheringham, of Kent Police, said: "Inaccurate reports have been made suggesting that no drugs paraphernalia was found at the address, with suggestions that the scene had been 'tampered' with prior to police arrival.

"While no detail will be provided around specific items, to prevent further speculation I will confirm that contrary to rumour in the media my officers did seize drugs paraphernalia from the address on 7 April. The coroner has authorised the disclosure of this information."

He added: 'Our investigation into the supply of drugs is continuing and remains a live investigation."

The statement comes as reports circulated suggesting that Miss Geldof's husband, musician Thomas Cohen, may be questioned by detectives. The 23-year-old discovered his wife's lifeless body slumped across a spare bed at their home.

In the statement, Fortheringham said: "Following recent speculation in the media, I would like to make it clear that Thomas Cohen is not in any way under suspicion of any involvement in Peaches Geldof-Cohen's death or our concurrent investigation into the supply of drugs.

"He has not been arrested or interviewed under caution and there is no plan to do so. The only statement he has provided related to his discovery of Peaches body, which is a standard requirement. We are in regular contact with both sides of the family to keep them apprised of our progress. Our investigation on behalf of the coroner continues and there will be no further information released at this time."

The Daily Mail reported that a source had claimed that Miss Geldof had been secretly visiting a drug rehab clinic near her Kent home in the weeks before her death.

It has also been revealed that she had become increasingly obsessed with the US musician Elliott Smith in the days before her death. Smith committed suicide in 2003 aged 34, after struggling with his own addictions to drugs and alcohol.

Miss Geldof's death has tragic similarities to the death of her mother Paula Yates, who died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41. She was discovered alone with her four-year-old daughter Tiger Lily by her body.

The full inquest into the death of Peaches Geldof is expected to begin in late July.
