Prodigy star Keith Flint's belongings up for auction

A haul of The Prodigy star Keith Flint's most prized possessions are set to go under the hammer at an auction on Thursday following his death in March.

His treasured belongings are part of a sale at Cheffins in Cambridge and include a custom-made gothic bed worth £20,000, his famous double cone septum nose piercing and a gold chest of drawers.

Many of his belongings, divided into more than 170 lots, will be offered to help settle his estate's debts.

The star owed roughly £7.3 million in debts and taxes when he died at the age of 49 at his Essex mansion earlier this year.

Among the items are MTV music awards and presentation discs from around the world, commemorating the global success of The Prodigy.

Attendees will be able to view the Firestarter hitmaker's clothing, jewellery and classic art collection at the auction.
