Thrill-seekers high on adrenalin and low on sleep have run alongside huge bulls on the third day at the San Fermin festival in Pamplona. Three people were hurt, including one man who was gored in a leg.

Saturday's run is traditionally one of the most crowded of the eight that take place annually. It featured the massive fighting bulls of the Dolores Aguirre breeding estate.

Navarra Hospital reported one man was gored in his left leg, another bruised his right leg and one had a slight face injury as runners jostled, tripped and fell alongside the bulls on their way to the bullring.

Two bulls became disoriented once inside the crowded ring at the end of the run and caused a scare as they raced around, scattering runners before arriving at the final corral.
