'Sing' hitmaker Ed Sheeran has paid more than £1 million (R14 060 000) for an old police station in his home town, and he is planning to convert it into a youth centre for the local community.

Ed Sheeran has bought a police station to convert it into a youth centre.

The Sing hitmaker has spent more than £1 million (R14 060 000) as he looks to give back to his home town of Framlingham, Suffolk after crediting the local community with getting him started in music.

According to The Sun, he said: "I'm really excited about the project. I had a youth club from when I was 12 when I grew up which did a battle of the bands every week and that's where I and other bands started playing."

When the centre closed its doors, the 23-year-old star moved to London - but he has his heart set on returning when he retires and hopes he can help lay the foundation for a new club and community for the town's youngsters.

He added: "The land the club was on was sold ... and I just went off to London and did shows instead. Now there are no youth clubs and noting to do so it's a bad situation. The plan when I get older is to end up running that - so I have pretty much planned my retirement."
