WE'VE ED IT! Ed Sheeran forced to knock down outdoor sauna and ditch huge pub sign at Suffolk mansion after he failed to get planning permission

POP star Ed Sheeran has been forced to knock down his sauna and take down a huge pub sign at his £1.5million Suffolk mansion.
The council complained about the 28-year-old's "unauthorised signage" and outside spa, which didn't have planning permission.

He had named his home pub after his new wife Cherry Lancaster Seaborn, calling it The Lancaster Lock - but council officers weren't happy.
They demanded he take down the 16ft sign before Christmas after finding he'd broken the rules during a site visit in March.
A Suffolk Coastal District Council spokesman said: "It was found that a sauna has been constructed near to the pond.
"We have raised concerns regarding this structure, which requires either planning permission or removal.

"We have also requested that all unauthorised signage be removed from the Grade II-listed barn."
Ed applied for planning permission in 2017 to build a pub at his lavish home.
The singer - who is worth around £40million - was given the go-ahead to create the extravagant addition with an underground passage to the main house.
But after installing a £500,000 pond next to a caravan, which had been converted into a sauna, his building work raised suspicion.

Council officers were concerned his pond could be used as an outdoor swimming pool over summer.
They told Ed he had to get planning permission or remove the sauna.
His property will be "monitored" by officers in future, they said.
Ed faced backlash last year when he submitted plans for 5ft railings outside his four-bedroom London townhouse.
The homeless campaigner said he wanted a barrier between his front door and the street to improve security.
