Peaches Geldof's home has been raided twice by thieves since her tragic death last month.

Police are currently investigating a double burglary at the late star's marital house in Wrotham, Kent, South East England, after it was reported a ride-on lawnmower had been snatched from the grounds in mid-April.

Peaches' father Sir Bob Geldof was planning to keep the outdoor machine in memory of his daughter, 25, but was left devastated when he discovered it had been stolen.

A neighbour told The Sun newspaper: "I know a mobile lawnmower was taken. Bob wanted to keep it for sentimental reasons, but it was broken so he asked someone to do it up.

"I spoke to the mechanic but he said they told him he couldn't repair it as it had been stolen. It's shocking to think someone would do that so soon after Peaches died."

However, last Friday the thieves struck again, but this time they deliberately damaged CCTV cameras located at the £1 million property, before breaking in.

Police rushed to the house within five minutes of receiving an emergency call, but the cruel culprits had already fled scene without taking anything.

Peaches was found dead by her husband Thomas Cohen on April 7 at the home they shared with their two sons Astala, two, and Phaedra, one.

An inquest heard earlier this month that heroin was "likely" to have played a role in the blonde beauty's death.

However, police have since released a statement insisting Thomas is not under suspicion of involvement in her death.
