London: Sir Paul McCartney was reportedly left shaken after his tour bus was attacked by a group of thugs in 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 things took an ugly turn after the tour bus entered an impoverished neighbourhood in the capital and a mob forced the driver to brake to a halt.

As per reports from The Daily Express, the crowd then scaled the bus, jumping up and down on its roof until local police were alerted, according to the Daily Mirror.

"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," The Daily Express quoted a source as telling the publication.
