The band need more protection

One Direction have been forced to ask for more minders after they were mobbed in New York on Sunday.

Liam Payne and Niall Horan, who’d taken a chance and left their hotel with only 1 security guard, were pushed and shoved by a group of around 60 Directioners.

‘That wasn’t even funny,’ Tweeted Liam, 18. 

Liam was reportedly pushed over in the ruckus, while Niall was struck in the face and lost clumps of his blond hair to the over-excited fans.

The boys are usually enthusiastic about the attention they get from admirers – but it seems this time they took it too far.

‘This is a complete joke,’ Tweeted Niall, 18.

‘Ridic.’
