police searched the property for drug paraphernalia but found none.

supermodel kate moss was among a host of celebrities who attended last month’s funeral at an english village church filled with memories for the tragedy-hit family.

geldof’s body was carried into st mary magdalene and st lawrence church in davington in kent southern england in a white coffin painted with a blue sky and clouds.

she said she used to live a life of “wanton wanderlust... lost in a haze of youth and no responsibilities” with “nothing stopping me from having constant fun”.

but that life became “boring” and her two children “became her entire existence and saved me” from a life of “pure apathy”.

she said fair-weather friends drifted away but in a “magic moment” when one of her children brought her a picture he had made “all my doubts were erased”.

“i had the perfect life — two beautiful babies who loved me more than anything. it was and is bliss” she wrote.

“i’m happier than ever.

“right now life is good. and being a mum is the best part of it.”

coroner roger hatch is set to adjourn the inquest until july in order to give relatives a chance to attend the full hearing the times reported.
