Children at a Suffolk primary school were "buzzing" when they found out they had received a video from superstar Ed Sheeran. 

The Suffolk-based singer songwriter sent a video to students at Pot Kiln Primary School in Great Cornard after a class was named after him. 

Headteacher Laura Jestico explained that each of the 12 classes was named after inspirational people and one of them was Ed Sheeran.

Mr Jestico added: "Sheeran class put on an assembly for the rest of the school to tell them about Ed Sheeran and they sent the work off to him, which is why we have got the video from Ed. 

"I am local Suffolk born and bred girl and I just appreciate that someone as famous and as talented as him has recognised the efforts of nine and ten-year-old children.

"We are absolutely thrilled to receive such a brilliant video.
