In a message on his website, Wood also offered his support to his close friend, writing: "Our thoughts and prayers are with Mick and L'Wren's family and friends at this incredibly devastating and difficult time.

"As a band we are one big family and we've all come together to support Mick, and will do everything we can to help him.

"We are currently rescheduling touring plans. We thank everyone for their understanding.

"We are so grateful for the messages of support at this sad time - while we take the time that is needed. XR ."

Their fellow bandmate Keith Richards yesterday vowed to support his ‘soul brother’ Jagger, adding that “no one saw this coming.”

Scott was found dead in her Manhattan apartment on Monday. The Chief Medical Examiner of New York ruled that the 49-year-old died as a result of suicide by hanging.
