Judge closes Stephen Gately death investigation

Stephen Gately
Gately features on the next Boyzone record

A Spanish judge has confirmed the late Boyzone star Stephen Gately died of natural causes and has closed the official investigation into his death.

The 33-year-old was found dead at his holiday home in Majorca last October.

The post-mortem examination revealed the singer suffered pulmonary oedema, which is an accumulation of fluid on the lungs.

Boyzone recently announced the release of their first song since Gately's death, entitled Gave It All Away,

The track features Gately's vocals, which were recorded in the summer of 2009.

The video for the song also features archive video of the star and his band-members, intercut with newly-filmed scenes of the group.

The single will be followed by a new album, Brother, out on 8 March
