Liam Payne suffers minor injury in airport rush

WENN

One Direction star Liam Payne was left shaken on Saturday after hundreds of excited girls rushed the band as they landed at London's Heathrow Airport following a promotional trip to the U.S.

The group sparked a fan frenzy upon their arrival from New York and they had to be whisked through the terminal to their waiting cars to avoid causing more havoc in the building.

One crazed devotee still managed to grab hold of Payne's arm during the rush and refused to let go, leaving the singer with a minor injury. Documenting the incident on Twitter, he wrote, "The awkward moment when a girl gives you a Chinese burn in the airport. My scratch is that bad I think I might just have to cut my arm off."

Payne uploaded a photo of the red scratch, adding, "Lol I just looked at (my) arm that's what happened when somebody pulls at your skin too hard. crazyday."

The singer also expressed his distress at disgruntled fans who turned on the bandmates after they failed to stop to sign autographs or pose for pictures, saying the stars had no control over the situation because the crowd had become too unruly.

He tweeted, "I don't know why people are blaming us for this. It's so sad when everyone's rushing and make it unsafe we get thrown back in our cars. That was actually horrible I literally wanted to cry and all those people shouting s**t at us and we even tried to stop so s**t."
