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

Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
