A drug syringe used by Peaches Geldof when she died seven weeks ago has been discovered in a drawer at her home. The syringe is believed to have been moved from the bed when 25-year-old Peaches died from a heroin overdose, and put in a drawer to save her children Phaedra and Astala seeing it.

When police originally arrived at the scene there was no sign of drugs or drug paraphernalia. A source told The Sun: “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.”
