One Direction's Niall Horan has reportedly been left shaken after the car he was travelling in slid into a barrier after skidding on ice.
The Sun said the pop star had been picked up in one of three vehicles from Heathrow's Terminal 5, after the band returned from a trip to Japan, when the accident happened.
Bandmates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik , Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson were in two people carriers while Niall, 19, was a front-seat passenger in a 4x4 which tilted on two wheels on a dual carriageway leading from the airport.
A fan said: "They all waved as they went past, then the crash happened so suddenly. It must have been terrifying - 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."
A source close to Niall was quoted as saying: "The crash was a shock but thankfully he's fine."
The report came as the Daily Mirror said that the band had racked up a fortune of £15 million each - in just two years - and so have now signed up with an asset management company to help look after their cash.
