A WATER-BOARD worker was yesterday gored to death by a bull which escaped from a field.

He is believed to have died from head injuries after a bull burst through a fence and trapped him between the fence and his van. Horrified onlookers tried to help Mr Cowan, from Abington, Lanarkshire, but he died at the scene. The animal is to be destroyed, police said.
