A huge crowd of fans have gathered in Braintree, Essex for the funeral procession


Fans are lining the streets in Essex to pay tribute to the late Prodigy frontman Keith Flint, who died earlier this month.

Last week, the group invited fans to join the procession route at Flint’s funeral, asking them to “raise the roof” in tribute to the frontman.

They wrote: “Fans are invited to line the procession route, starting at 3pm in Braintree, Essex on Fri 29th March, to pay their final respects & ‘raise the roof’ for Keef!” You can see details of the route here:

Flint died earlier this month (March 4) at his Essex home, with an inquest later stating that he had taken his own life. He was 49.

“It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint,” said surviving Prodigy members Liam Howlett and Maxim Reality in a statement after he died. “A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.”

In an Instagram post, Howlett added: “The news is true. I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend…I’m shell shocked, fuckin angry, confused and heart broken.”

A huge number of fans have gathered on the streets of Essex to honour the frontman, with many playing dance music in Flint’s honour. You can see some images fans have posted below:

Some schools in the area have closed and Essex Police have asked drivers to avoid the area and find alternative routes wherever possible due to the large numbers of fans in attendance.

Essex Police have also asked for fans and members of the public to respect the privacy of Flint’s family and loved ones on this difficult day. Fans will be able to hear the service which is being relayed from St Mary’s Church, Bocking, to well-wishers outside.
