Suffolk singer Ed Sheeran has announced he is "taking a break" from social media.

Despite having 16 million Twitter and 5.5 million Instagram followers, the star from Framlingham says he is seeing the world through a screen and not his eyes.

Writing on Instagram, he explained he is "taking the opportunity of not having to be anywhere... to travel the world".
