A hospital launched a review of care given to "high profile" patients after singer Ed Sheeran was treated there for a broken arm, it has emerged.

Last October Ed Sheeran broke his right wrist and left elbow in a cycling accident, which meant he had to pull out of a number of dates of his Asian tour.

He was admitted to a hospital in Ipswich, where the staff asked him to sign autographs while he was being treated. 

Ipswich Hospital said its policies and protocols were reviewed every one to three years.

It said its policy for "high profile patients" was due for a review in November.

A spokeswoman for the hospital has said the review covered "confidentiality, privacy of the patient and their loved ones and practical considerations".
