One Direction are reportedly set to ramp up their security after Liam Payne and Niall Horan were knocked over by fans in New York.
The pair were enjoying a day off in the Big Apple when they were mobbed by a gang of 60 fans – with only one bodyguard to protect them, The Mirror has reported.
The heartthrobs were apparently knocked to the ground and had their hair pulled and clothing ripped by the overexcited fans.
A source told the newspaper: "They're going to have to be more careful in the future and have at least one security guard each with them.
"It's a shame for the boys, because they appreciate their freedom."
It seems the lads soon cheered up and were spotted leaving their hotel to go and get their teeth whitened.
