Thousands of festival-goers enjoyed a party atmosphere at the V Festival in Chelmsford over the weekend.

Suffolk singer Ed Sheeran was one of dozens of musicians to wow the crowds at the annual showpiece.

The Framlingham musician, who has enjoyed national and worldwide success this year, took to the stage at Hylands Park on Saturday.

The 23-year-old star performed some of his hits, including Don’t, Sing, Give Me Love and The A Team.

Meanwhile singer Justin Timberlake gave a crowdpleasing performance of non-stop hits including Rock Your Body, Sexy Back, and Mirrors. Mercury Music Prize winners Elbow also performed, but Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers were forced to cancel after being stranded in Hungary.
