A runner at Pamplona's famous Running of the Bull festival has been rushed to hospital after being gored in the bottom.

At least five people have required hospital treatment , including a 20-year-old Canadian tourist thought to have suffered a gore injury in the leg, after the first run yesterday in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona.

Hospital chiefs confirmed the initial injury toll moments after the opening run, which was complicated by overnight rain which made the streets more slippery.

Two of the six fighting bulls became separated from the pack at the start of the half-mile course along the cobbled streets of Pamplona’s Old Town.
