Man dies after being gored at Spanish bull-run in the Valencia region

A man has died after being gored by a bull at a festival in Spain.

The incident happened in the town of Pobla de Farnals in the Valencia region on Saturday.

Footage has been posted on Spanish media reportedly showing the bull involved.

The victim, who has not been named, was gored in his side by the horned animal during a traditional bull-running event.

He was taken to hospital but died later, according to officials.

The same bull, called Cocinero or Cook, also gored a second man in the leg. He was in a stable condition in hospital on Sunday.

It has been reported by local media that both men were members of the group which organised the festival.

Celebrations were cancelled on Saturday evening in the wake of the tragedy.

Such events, where bulls are released into the streets and runners dash ahead of them, are held in hundreds of areas across Spain every year.

While they remain popular, many activists argue they are dangerous and cruel, and the debate over whether they should be banned has become more heated in recent years.
