Whitney Houston's body has been flown from California to her home state of New Jersey, ahead of a funeral expected later this week.

A gold hearse took her body from the airport to a funeral home in her hometown of Newark.

Police say the 48-year-old singer was found underwater and unconscious on Saturday, in a bath at a hotel in Beverly Hills.

The authorities said it may be up to eight weeks before they can confirm the cause of death.

No criminal probe is under way, but LA's coroner said her room did contain some prescription drugs.
