Flowers for Paula Yates after her death

Flower tributes are piled outside Paula Yates' house in the Notting Hill district of London after her death in 2000. This photo was taken on September 21, 2000. Paula Yates was born in 1959, and was 41 when she died of a heroin overdose in this house. A coroner later ruled that her death was not a suicide, but rather due to "foolish and incautious" activity.
