80,000 expected at Ed Sheeran gig in Leeds

80,000 people are expected in Leeds for one of the region's biggest ever gigs. Ed Sheeran will be performing at Roundhay Park this weekend on the final leg of his Divided world tour.

The two gigs, supported by Lewis Capaldi, will have a homecoming feel to them - as Sheeran was born in Halifax before moving to Suffolk.

Special permission has been granted to increase capacity at the park to allow crowds roughly the same size as Leeds Festival to attend.

Robbie Williams was the last big name to play in Roundhay park back in 2006.

The Met office has forecast that heavy rain and strong winds are set to hit Leeds during Sheeran's concerts tonight and tomorrow evening.
