Boyband One Direction have marshalled their millions of fans to back a charity campaign.

The four-piece have asked fans to share pictures and videos online describing the kind of world they want to live in as part of the action/2015 campaign, organised by Save The Children.

"Time and again our fans have shown how creative and powerful they can be when they unite and that's why we want to all join together to speak out and hopefully make a real and lasting change to the world around us," the band said.

The fans' contributions will be made into a film to be shown at two UN summits later this year to put pressure on world leaders to hear young people's voices.
