Paul McCartney was reportedly left fearing for his safety after his tour bus came under attack from a group of thugs in a tough area of Mexico on Friday night.

The Beatles legend performed at the Foro Sol arena in Mexico City on Thursday and Friday to huge crowds of fans.

But the visit turned sour after his final concert when his bus entered an impoverished neighbourhood in the capital and a mob ran up to the vehicle, forcing the driver to brake to a halt.

The crowd then scaled the bus, jumping up and down on its roof until local police were alerted, according to Britain's Daily Mirror.

A source tells the publication, "At first his security team thought it was just swarms of fans but when people started scaling the bus, the situation changed in a flash. Paul and the team were left shaken up."
