Fifi Geldof went to great lengths on social media to defend her younger sister and deny Peaches, who died of a heroin overdose in April, was "selfish".

The 31-year-old, whose anger was caused by what she referred to "the viciousness" of the reaction to Peaches' death, responded by writing that one user had "no idea" what they were talking about on Instagram.

An inquest heard police found 6.9g (0.24oz) of "importation quality" heroin in Peaches' bedroom.  

The heroin, found in a black cloth bag above the bedroom door, was reported to have a purity of 61% with an estimated value between £350 and £550.

According to The Sun, Fifi closed an expletive filled rant with: "Maybe now she'll be allowed to RIP."

She followed her series of posts on her Instagram account, which has now been made private, by thanking followers who had posted messages of support.

Peaches Geldof's one-year-old son Phaedra was in the family home in Wrotham, Kent, when the former model and journalist died.

Police also said they discovered a syringe containing residue of heroin inside a sweet box next to the bed and other drug paraphernalia including burnt spoons, syringes and knotted tights throughout the property.

North West Kent Coroner Roger Hatch said Ms Geldof's death had been "drugs-related" and heroin had played a part.
