The family of Peaches Geldof have described how they are "beyond pain" following news the 25-year-old has died.

The daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates was found dead at an address in Wrotham, Kent in what police describe as "unexplained and sudden" circumstances.

Geldof, who was married with two young sons - Astala, one, and Phaedra, who will turn one on 24 April - was known for her presenting work on ITV2's OMG as well as being a contributing writer to the Telegraph and Guardian.

Her father, former Boomtown Rats singer and Live Aid promoter, described her as the "wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us".

He added: "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. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof".
