Sad news this morning as it's emerged that Prodigy frontman Keith Flint has died. The singer was reportedly found dead in his Essex home in circumstances that are not currently being treated as suspicious.

An Essex Police spokesman told The Sun: "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."

Flint was originally a dancer with the hugely popular rave group Prodigy and went on to take the lead, most notably on their best-known singles 'Firestarter' and 'Breathe', which both went to No 1.

While at their peak in the nineties, The Prodigy continued to perform together with their seventh studio album, 'No Tourists', released just last November.
