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."



Keith performed vocals on The Prodigy's number one singles 'Firestarter' and 'Breathe' which were released in 1996.

After emerging in the early 90s, The Prodigy quickly became one of the UK's biggest bands and were known as the 'Godfathers of the Rave'.

According to The Sun, Flint moved to Braintree, Essex, as a child where he went on to meet Liam Howlett - co-founder of The Prodigy.

In recent years he had success as a motorcycle racing team owner and manager. His team won three Isle of Man TT races in 2015 and competed in the British Supersport Championship.

In a post to the band's official Instagram account, The Prodigy's Liam Howlett said Flint had 'taken his own life.'

RIP Keith.
