Homegrown hero Ed Sheeran returned to Suffolk to record the video for new single Bloodstream.

A group of youngsters aged eight to 10 were participating in the video in the Cornhill in Ipswich at around 7pm, having filmed in other areas around Suffolk earlier in the day.

While Sheeran was not present during the evening filming, it is believed he had been around earlier in the day for filming in other locations in Suffolk.

Filming for the track is expected to continue elsewhere in the town on Tuesday.

Sheeran is notorious for rarely appearing in videos for his songs, with no indication as to whether he would feature in the new video despite his Suffolk roots.

Sheeran has previously said in an interview with Spotify that the song is about an experience he had in Ibiza, where he bizarrely claimed he felt like he had fallen in love with beanbags.
