Flint was found dead at his home in the Essex hamlet of North End.

An inquest confirmed unspecified amounts of cocaine, codeine and alcohol were present in his system at the time of his death. A coroner said that an open conclusion had been recorded for the cause of death, because there was not sufficient evidence to rule the death as suicide.

The band cancelled all forthcoming shows in the wake of Flint’s death. The Prodigy had only recently released their seventh studio album, No Tourists, in November last year, and had embarked on a world tour.

Flint, initially one of the band’s two dancers when they first formed in 1990, later became integral to their success, performing vocals on number one singles Firestarter and Breathe.
