Callous burglars have struck twice at Peaches Geldof’s Wrotham home since her death last month, police have revealed.

The house where Bob Geldof’s daughter lived with her husband, Thomas Cohen, and their two children has been targeted by thieves in recent weeks.

CCTV had been installed in the £1million home but the cameras were damaged by the trespassers.

Miss Geldof was found dead in her home on April 7.

A red ride-on lawnmower, which featured in one of their family photographs taken before Miss Geldof’s death, was stolen in the first incident in mid-April.

A police spokesman said that following the latest break-in, officers arrived within five minutes.

"Police are investigating a burglary at an address in Fairseat Lane, Wrotham, on 9 May," he said.

"No personal items are believed to have been stolen.

"Additionally, in mid-April a lawn mower was reported [to police] to have been taken from the grounds."

At the opening of the hearing in Gravesend, Det Ch Insp Paul Fotheringham said recent heroin use "was likely to have played a role" in her death.
