Pop star Rihanna has gone on Twitter to complain about fans mobbing her at a station in France.

The singer posted a photo of herself at London's St Pancras station, about to take a train to Paris.

Her train departure time was also included in the post, marked on a station sign and visible to her 25 million Twitter followers.

Fans arrived at the Gare du Nord station in Paris late on Saturday, waiting to greet the musician.

Both the security team at the Eurostar station, and her own bodyguards struggled to protect Rihanna from the crush of people around her.

The singer then sent three tweets, complete with swear words, complaining about the pushing of the crowd as she left the station.

One tweet read: "I just had to fight my way out of a damn train station!!!"

Rihanna was in Paris to do a guest performance with Coldplay.

She performed with the band in front of 80,000 people at the Stade de France.
