The boys don't anyone to get hurt

One Direction threatened to leave the stage on the second night of their Where We Are world tour on Sunday after fans started getting crushed.

Over 200 people were either squashed or fainted at Lima’s Peru National Stadium when the 45,000-strong crowd started pushing forward towards the lads.

‘If you don’t want anyone to take us off the stage, make sure you stay back,’ warned Niall Horan.

Harry Styles threw cold water on the front row while Liam Payne added: ‘Or we’ll have to go – and we don’t want to go.’

Fire crews were forced to put an additional evacuation plan in place and tents were set up as emergency pop-up treatment centres outside.

‘We treated 47 children with the first stages of asphyxia. Everything is under control,’ head of Peru’s volunteer fire service Mario Cassareto tells Peruvian radio.

‘We’ve handled the situation well. We’re working with the police and the security companies [who were contracted for the show]. It’s under control.’

A spokesman for 1D told the Daily Mirror: ‘Audience safety is always the priority on a One Direction tour.

‘The band’s management employ, in their touring party, the very best crowd control and advance security specialists.

‘[They] plan in advance and on the day with all the relevant local experts and services including police, fire, medical, the venue and the promoter.’
