The former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright is reportedly set to buy a 20% stake in non-league Billericay Town football club.

The Sun reported that the 30-year-old will soon become a club director after he's allegedly been heading down to the ground to check out their facilities as he finalises the details of his involvement.

Billericay are currently eighth in the Isthmian League Premier Division, three points off the play-off places.

Wright is no stranger to the game.

He spent his childhood playing for West Ham, Arsenal and Tottenham, before beginning his senior career at Southend.

Ed Sheeran fans have been queuing the rain to pick up a bargain second-hand shirt.

The Suffolk singer-songwriter has donated around 20 items of his clothing to the new East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) shop in Halesworth in Suffolk.

Ed is an ambassador for EACH and has donated clothing before.

Some 100 items sold previously for £8,000, as well as his teenage drum kit which raised £2,650.

Luton Carnival: three men guilty of violent disorder

Fights broke out in St George's Square after the carnival had finished last May

Three men have been convicted of causing violence and disorder at the Luton Carnival last year.

Fights broke out in St George's Square on Sunday 29 May, after the carnival had finished.

Four people were taken to hospital with stab wounds and several others were injured.

Nathan Kiasala, 20, and Jason Kiasala, 18, both from Luton, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm, possession of an offensive weapon, and violent disorder.

Daniel Idiabeta, 19, and also from Luton, was found guilty of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon.

They're due to be sentenced on 24 September.

This has been a complex investigation into what was completely unacceptable behaviour.

I hope this sends a stark reminder to others that we will not tolerate those who wish to bring harm to our communities, they will be caught and made to pay for their actions.

– Detective Inspector Iain Morgan
