Hundreds of Prodigy fans have spent the afternoon celebrating Keith Flint's life from the sidelines of his funeral procession route.

After dying by suicide aged 48 earlier this month, Keith Flint's hometown of Braintree, Essex was brought to a near-standstill as fans lined the route of his funeral procession.

The singer was transported to St Mary's Church in a horse and cart, with flower tributes spelling out "Keef".

As his coffin was being carried into the church, fans began to cheer and clap.

BBC Essex reported that the musician was carried into the church to System Of A Down's "Aerials".

A group of DJs are hosting shows around the UK until 3 May in memory of Keith Flint to fundraise for mental health charities. Find out more.
