DAVINGTON (AFP) - Supermodel Kate Moss was among a host of celebrities who attended the funeral on Monday of Bob Geldof's daughter Peaches, at an English village church filled with memories for the tragedy-hit family.

The 25-year-old television presenter'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.

The church, which is next to the Geldof family estate, was the venue for the funeral of Peaches' mother Paula Yates, who died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.

It was also where Ms Yates married Bob Geldof, the lead singer of the Boomtown Rats and organiser of the Live Aid concert, and where Peaches herself married in 2012.
