One Direction fans are getting craftier about invading the group’s territory.

The British boyband - comprising of Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne - is hounded by crazed admirers everywhere they go.

Most recently, a young lady hid herself in trash in an attempt to meet her favourite band.

“They got busted,” Zayn told UK newspaper The Mirror. “They hid in a bin and tried to come in the back entrance.”

One Direction’s overzealous supporters continue to discover novel ways of getting close to the group members.

“The methods fans are using are getting more ingenious,” a source told the publication. “Some have been regularly booking out rooms in their hotel - some even tried to dress up as staff.”

One Direction’s security has been beefed up following an incident in which some of the boys’ clothes were ripped in New York City last week by excited fans.

Guards refuse to allow any harm to come to the band.

“But the boys’ minders won’t be letting any of these tricks get past them,” the source detailed. “They’ll look in every bin if they have to.”
