Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Wadge has given a new meaning to phrase hitting the high notes - after singing on top of the Severn Bridge.

Wadge sang a specially written track - fittingly titled The Bridge - 80ft high on a platform on Friday morning to mark BBC Music Day.

The one-off performance also saw a massed choir on the English bank of the River Severn back the Anglo-Welsh singer.

Wadge, whose songwriting partnership with Ed Sheeran saw her collect a Grammy Award in February for the track Thinking Out Loud, said: "It's quite a big thing for me because I live in Wales and I'm from Bristol, and that whole connection of the two places seems to be quite a huge thing to be writing a song about.

"Anything that celebrates music and the coming together of loads of different voices, then I am always going to want to be a part of it, because it's my job and I love my job.

"So hopefully people will get in to the spirit of what we are trying to do."
