S Club 7 star Paul Cattermole died from natural causes, a coroner in the UK has ruled.

The 46-year-old was found dead in his Dorset home one month ago, just days after the former pop band behind hits 'S Club Party' and 'Reach' announced they were going on a 25th anniversary reunion tour.

Dorset's Coroner Service said in a statement widely reported by UK media that they would not be carrying out an inquest.

"We confirm that Mr Cattermole died from natural causes and our investigations have concluded. As his death was from natural causes there will be no inquest."

However, police in Dorset have said their enquiries are "ongoing" into the death.

Cattermole was found in his residence on April 6.

His bandmates released a statement paying tribute to the star after the news was announced.

"We are truly devastated by the passing of our brother Paul. There are no words to describe the deep sadness and loss we all feel. We were so lucky to have had him in our lives and are thankful for the amazing memories we have.

"He will be so deeply missed by each and every one of us. We ask that you respect the privacy of his family and of the band at this time."

Ever since the news of his death was made public, his former girlfriend and bandmate Hannah Spearritt announced she would no longer be part of the 25th anniversary tour in the UK.

The group has also changed its name to S Club, dropping the 7 after the announcement of Cattermole's death and Spearritt's subsequent departure.
