Prodigy frontman Keith Flint dies aged 49

Keith Flint, the iconic frontman of the 1990s electronic band The Prodigy, has been found dead at his home. He was 49.

Police were called to the singer’s home in Dunmow, Essex at around 8am this morning following what they called ‘concerns for his welfare’.

Flint was found dead inside the property and police say they are not treating the death as suspicious.

The musician became one of the faces of Britpop in the 1990s when his energetic dance style and punk haircuts made him one of the movement’s most recognizable characters. 

An Essex Police spokesperson 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

‘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.’
