Ed Sheeran has applied for permission to build a private chapel on his estate in Framlingham.

The Suffolk singer announced his engagement to Cherry Seaborn in January.

A decision on the proposed Saxon style chapel is expected in April.

The application states there is a need for the chapel as "it is every person's right to be able to have a place of retreat for contemplation and prayer, for religious observance, celebration of key life and family milestones, marriages, christenings and so forth".
