One Direction star Niall Horan was involved in an accident when his car skidded on ice in London.

The 19-year-old Irish singer was a front seat passenger in the Range Rover when it slid into a crash barrier.

According to The Sun newspaper, Niall "climbed shakily" from the vehicle after the car skidded on the ice and tilted on two wheels before straddling the barrier.

Niall's bandmates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson were in two other people carriers when the accident happened on a dual carriageway near the airport.

"They all waved as they went past, then the crash happened so suddenly. It must have been terrifying," a fan told the newspaper.  

"The car's wheels lifted off the road. We saw Niall climbing out. He looked shaken up but didn't seem hurt. He got into a people carrier and they drove off again."

The incident came after he and the boy band had been picked up from Heathrow after playing in Japan.

A source close to Niall said the crash had been a shock for the star "but thankfully he's fine."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


This isn't a good time to gamble. Even if an investment seems like a sure thing, it could undermine your financial security. Keep your money safe in the bank. If a loved one is clamouring to make a big purchase, sit down together and review your bank account. Once your partner sees the truth of the situation, they'll feel less compelled to splash out on luxuries. This shortage will be temporary, as long as you exercise restraint during lean times. Getting into serious debt will make a tough situation worse.More
