The Prodigy singer Keith Flint died from hanging

The Chemical Brothers, Kasabian and Emily Eavis are among those paying tribute to The Prodigy's Keith Flint following his death at 49.

The musician was found dead at his home in Essex on 4 March.

A hearing was told that a post-mortem found the 49-year-old's provisional cause of death was hanging. "Police attended, all protocols were followed and his death was confirmed as not suspicious", coroner's officer Lynsey Chaffee said, according to the BBC.

A post mortem was carried out on March 7 at Broomfield Hospital by Dr Lower, consultant histopathologist at Broomfield, who gave a provisional cause of death as hanging.

A full hearing will be held in the summer, and the death remains under investigation before toxicology reports are completed.
