One Direction's Niall Horan has pleaded with fans and paparazzi to stop chasing the band on motorways, calling it "dangerous" and "scary".

"We've been chased down the street and on the motorways and surely that's not safe... They're hanging out of windows, stuff like that - at 70 miles an hour, switching lanes," he told Scott Mills on BBC Radio 1.

In a series of social media posts in the last few weeks, the 21-year-old has been calling for an end to the car chases.

The star explained he did not want to sound "moan-y" but appealed for some privacy and for safer driving.

"We go to these cities and we don't get to see a lot of them. We have friends in a lot of these places so it's nice to try and get out and see them," he added.
