Southend-based artist John Bulley has created a tribute to the late Prodigy frontman, who tragically died earlier this month.

An Essex-based artist has created a mural of The Prodigy's Keith Flint.

Tributes have continued to pour in from all over the entertainment world, with everyone from Elton John to Stereophonics' Kelly Jones talking about the impact of the late rave legend.

Now, a local artist from Southend-on-Sea has made a fitting tribute to the Firestarter singer, creating a mural under the railway bridge in Southend High Street- the same county as the Essex icon.

See some images of the tribute below:

Meanwhile, a campaign was launched for a Keith Flint statue in The Prodigy's hometown of Braintree.

The petition, which was created by Saphya Gower, begins: "Keith was important to not only the people of Braintree, but was well loved and respected world wide and a pivotal piece of the music industry. Braintree being The Prodigy’s home town we should remember him. It'll also reflect how important it is to talk about mental health and not to suffer alone."

Keith Flint's "provisional medical cause of death" was also confirmed last week.

According to PA, an inquest heard that the iconic frontman died as a result of hanging.

In a two-minute hearing in Chelmsford on Monday, Coroner's officer Lynsey Chaffe revealed: "Police attended, all protocols were followed and his death was confirmed as not suspicious."

Ms Chaffe said this remains under investigation while toxicology reports are awaited.

Senior coroner for Essex Caroline Beasley-Murray opened and adjourned the inquest until 23 July for a full hearing.
