A BRITISH man was trampled at the Running of the Bulls, part of the annual San Fermin festival in Pamplona.

Tom Hadfield, from Nottingham, began vomiting blood, after suffering four fractured ribs and puncturing a lung after attempting the decades-old tradition of the encierro.

The 23-year-old explained never having experienced ‘pain like this before,’ while recovering in the Hospital De Navarro after waking up in an ambulance feeling ‘paralysed.’

‘It’s a miracle they didn’t crush my skull or break my back,’ says Mr Hadfield, who is expected to return to work next week.
