Paula Yates lived & died here
This is where TV presenter Paula Yates lived and died.
Location: St Luke's Mews, Notting Hill, London, W11 1DG
Description: This is the home where Big Breakfast presenter Paula Yates (24-Apr-1960 - 17-Sep-2000) lived. It's also where Paula was found dead, at the age of 40, of an accidental heroin overdose, leaving her youngest child an orphan.
