Ed Sheeran has responded to reports that he left social media because of hostile comments insisting: “I haven’t quit anything”.

The Suffolk superstar had spoken in a recent interview about the “mean things” people said to him on Twitter and how it could “ruin” his day.

However, on Instagram last night, Ed, who attended Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, made it clear he was not leaving social media - he was just refusing to read the negative comments any more.

“Loads of Hoo-har about me quitting stuff,” he said.

“I haven’t quit anything.

“I’m just not reading anything, except Harry Potter.

“Hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th yo.”

In December 2015, Ed announced he was taking a year-long break from social media, and music, when he went off into the “wilderness”.

He later shared details of his time off, when he went travelling to places including Australia, Iceland and Ghana.

Could you give this abandoned rabbit a loving home?

An Ipswich man has avoided going straight to jail for selling counterfeit goods on Facebook.

A Suffolk woman living with a debilitating condition has spoken out about her “depressing” battle to keep her disability benefit – and her life-line car.

Authorities have been given permission to seize almost £117,000 from the bank account of an Ipswich mechanic found to have paid in £2.5million over the course of eight months.

If you have an odd £2.5m or so, you could make a bid for a hall with history. John Norman tells its story.
