Original story: Keith Flint, frontman of The Prodigy, has died at the age of 49.

The singer was found dead at his home in Essex this morning.

A spokesperson for 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.
