A bull leapt out of the arena at a bullring in northern Spain and charged into a crowd of terrified spectators, injuring some 30 people, Spanish media has said.

Spanish television showed dramatic images of screaming spectators, including children, frantically trying to avoid the animal after it hurdled a security barrier that surrounds the arena as well as a fence and clambered up the crowded stands.

The incident occurred on Wednesday evening in the bullring in the town of Tafalla, in the Navarra region.

Some 30 people were injured, the local Diario de Navarra newspaper said.

Most suffered cuts and bruises or shock, but one man was gored in the back and a 10-year-old boy was being examined at a hospital in the nearby town of Pamplona after suffering multiple bruises.
