The Prodigy’s vocalist and frontman, Keith Flint, has died.

The 49 year old was found dead at his home in Dunmow, Essex this morning. In a statement, Essex police said: “We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man at an address in Brook Hill, North End, just after 8.10am on Monday, March 4. We attended and, sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed. The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”

Keith was the outrageous face of rave band The Prodigy and sang on number one singles ‘Breathe’ and, most famously, ‘Firestarter’.
