Burglars have twice targeted the home of tragic British model and TV presenter Peaches Geldof, daughter of Live Aid founder Bob Geldof, since her death last month, police said on Tuesday.

Kent police are investigating the break-ins at the country property in Wrotham, which took place in mid-April and last Friday.

“Officers were at the address within five minutes [of the May 9 break-in] and no personal items are believed to have been stolen,” police said in a statement.

“Additionally, in mid-April a lawn mower was reported to have been taken from the grounds,” the statement continued.

An inquest found that heroin was the likely cause of death of the 25-year-old mother-of-two, the same drug that killed her mother Paula Yates in 2000.

Peaches Geldof, who had two young sons, was found dead on her bed by her husband Thomas Cohen at her rural home southeast of London on April 7, police told the inquest.
