A 43-year-old man was gored twice by a bull during celebrations in the town of Coria, Extremadura on Wednesday, despite standing behind a protective fence.

The victim was rushed to hospital where he died from his injuries.

In a separate incident, an 80-year-old bullfighting fanatic died in hospital on Wednesday in Ampolla, Tarragona after being gored.
