The Prodigy’s Keith Flint has died aged 49. The electronic music pioneer was found dead in his home in Dunmow, Essex this morning.

Flint is best known as the lead vocalist of The Prodigy, who rose to fame in the mid-90s with their iconic track, Firestarter. But more recently he has been exploring his other passions, enjoying success as the owner and manager of Team Traction Control who won three races at the 2015 Isle of Man TT with Ian Hutchinson at the helm, in addition to competing in the British Supersport Championship with Yamaha YZF-R6’s.

A spokesperson from 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. 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.’

An East of England Ambulance spokeswoman added: ‘We were called at 8.08am with reports of a man who was unconscious in Brook Hill, Dunmow. We sent an ambulance officer, Essex and Herts Air Ambulance and one ambulance. Sadly a man in his forties died at the scene.’

A representative for Flint has declined to comment at this stage, while his bandmates have yet to comment on the news.
