The Prodigy Fans Pay Final Respects to Keith Flint by Lining the Essex Streets

A private funeral service for the late frontman has taken place at St Mary's Church in Bocking, England with Leeroy Thornhill as well as ex-bandmates Maxim and Liam Howlett among the attendees.

AceShowbiz - The Prodigy fans from around the world arrived in Essex on Friday, March 29, for the funeral of Keith Flint.

A post on The Prodigy's official Twitter page invited fans to line a 1.5 mile (2.4 kilometre) procession route and "raise the roof for Keef" ahead of the private service at St Mary's Church in Bocking, England, and devotees didn't disappoint, coming from as far afield as Australia and the Czech Republic to pay their respects.

A horse-drawn carriage carried the late star's coffin to the service, which included poems, readings and music from Van Morrison and Pink Floyd.

After the procession, fans gathered outside the church and listened as Revd. Rod Reid's solemn service for family and close friends was broadcast over speakers.

Among the mourners inside were Keith's bandmates Maxim, Leeroy Thornhill and Liam Howlett, who was accompanied to the service by his wife Natalie Appleton and her All Saints bandmate and sister Nicole Appleton.

Flint, 49, was found dead at his home near Dunmow, Essex on 4 March. An inquest heard earlier this month that the British star had died by hanging, and Liam also confirmed in an Instagram post that his bandmate "took his own life."
