Singer Ed Sheeran has had his own private chapel built on his vast estate in east Suffolk  — complete with its own ‘burial chamber’.

Work started more than 19 months ago and planning documents show it features a 9ft by 6ft ‘crypt’ beneath the flint-walled boat-shaped structure, which is in the grounds of his sprawling home near Framlingham, Suffolk.
