London - A syringe used by Peaches Geldof to inject heroin before she died was found in a drawer at her home.

The needle was discovered by police who searched the late socialite's house in Wrotham, Kent, where she was found dead seven weeks ago and it was reportedly moved because it was too "harrowing" for the family to see.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "The needle is believed to have been moved from the bed where her body was found and put in a drawer.

"This was not a cover-up. It was apparently done because it was such a harrowing thing to see and there were young children in the house”.

When police first arrived at the property there was no sign of drugs or drug paraphernalia but officers insist Peaches' husband Thomas Cohen, 23, is "not in any way under suspicion”.

The source also said analysis of a laptop Peaches, 25, was using at the time of her death suggests she passed away at about 11am on April 7 at the home the couple shared with their two sons Astala, two, and Phaedra, one.

An inquest found that heroin was "likely" to have played a role in the blonde beauty's death - the same drug that killed Peaches' mother Paula Yates in 2000 - and a full inquest is due to take place in July.

Meanwhile, Peaches' father, Bob Geldof, performed his first gig at the weekend since his daughter's death with his band, The Boomtown Rats.

The grieving singer made no mention of his daughter during their set at Volkfest in Plymouth but fans claim he put on a "remarkable show.” - BANG Showbiz
