One D to have 100 guards on tour?

One Direction will apparently have 100 bodyguards when they embark on their world tour.
The boy band's excitable young fans are so desperate to get close to them that Harry Styles and co are laying on extra precautions when they hit the road for the Where We Are tour next month.
The Midnight Memories singers will each be protected by 20 personal guards - meaning they will have 100 between them, reported the Daily Star.
A source said: "It's an insane amount of security for one band, but considering the way crowds form around them, it's necessary."
The 100-strong team will be tasked with keeping fans off stage at the boys' tour dates, as well as making sure they are safe when they are out or at their hotel.
One Direction start their tour in the US in April.
