Keith Flint’s Prodigy pals pay tribute on two-year anniversary of tragic death

Keith Flint's former Prodigy bandmates have paid tribute two years after the star was found dead at the age of 49.

Taking to Twitter, they wrote: "It's been two years, we miss you so so much brother, your light burns bright, your energy will never fade, keep it real, keep it punk rock, we live forever! LH and Maxim."

They added the hashtag "we live forever" and a photo of Keith performing.

The star had unspecified amounts of all three substances at the time of his death an inquest has heard.

In 2019, the 49-year-old was found dead at his home in the Essex hamlet of North End on March 4.

Speaking at a brief inquest in Chelmsford in May of the same year, coroner's officer Linda Calder explained how Mr Flint was found hanged at home by a friend.

Ms Calder went on to confirm a post-mortem examination also noted the presence of cocaine, alcohol and codeine at the time of his death.

Essex Senior Coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray recorded an open conclusion, adding that "we will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date".

Flint's family and management decided not to attend the hearing but were aware of it taking place.

Explaining how she reached her conclusion, she said: "I've considered suicide.

"To record that, I would have to have found that, on the balance of probabilities, Mr Flint formed the idea and took a deliberate action knowing it would result in his death.
