A major bullfighting event in Madrid has been called off after all three matadors were gored by bulls at the prestigious Las Ventas ring.

The fight, the 12th of the famed San Isidro festival, was stopped after bulls gored two matadors and tossed a third one into the air. Organisers said it was the first time the event had been suspended in 35 years.
