Oliver Perry, who is three, became Ed Sheeran for the day after hearing it was a dream of his mum’s work colleague to meet the star.

Sarah Perry, mother to Oliver, works at Easton and Otley college with principle Jane Townsend and knew she wanted to meet the Castle on the Hill singer ahead of Suffolk Day so let Oliver fill the void.

Jane Townsend, college principal of Easton and Otley college, said: “I’m a huge fan of his music and whilst one day I really hope to meet the real Ed, meeting mini Ed ahead of the celebrations was the next best thing.

“Suffolk Day is such a great campaign. One of my oldest friends has lived in Ipswich for many years and I love exploring this amazing county.

“I love the waterfront in Ipswich, the historic charm of Bury St Edmunds. I also love the glorious coastline here, let alone its sense of place within this country’s long history.

“Its rich farming heritage helps provide incredible produce for the many stunning restaurants and bars that are situated here. It has such a warm and homely feel as a county and we are proud to get involved in the celebrations.”

Last year for Suffolk Day some students of the college came in wearing ginger wigs also dressed as Ed. This year, the college has organised a student fun day to celebrate the end of the year, the Otley campus and the county as a whole.

A Colchester man accused of being part of a gang of men armed with stun guns who burst into a flat occupied by two sex workers has admitted using a stolen bank card belonging to one of the women.

With Christmas around the corner, Suffolk has retail temp jobs a plenty - but which jobs in other sectors are getting increasingly tough to fill?

Over the Christmas and New Year period we all struggle to keep a lid on our waste - the food bin groans under the weight of turkey carcasses and our blue recycling bulges with empty boxes from trikes and new games consoles so the last thing you want is to miss your rubbish collection.

Suffolk police seized a higher volume of crack cocaine than any force outside the Met last year, according to new figures.

An Ipswich mother has called for measures to slow drivers at a busy junction after her son almost died in a collision there.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
