Ed Sheeran's plans to build a private chapel on his English estate in East Anglia have been refused.

The singer, who announced his engagement to Cherry Seaborn in January, had submitted proposals for a Saxon-style structure to Suffolk Coastal District Council.

Permission was refused by planning officers saying it's been turned down as it would be 'in conflict with the prevailing landscape'. Stating this was due to the “principle of the unsustainable form of development in the countryside”.

It said the proposed 48ft (14.6m) church tower would be “in conflict with the prevailing landscape character, creating the impression of a second village church”.
