Pensioner trampled to death by herd of cows

A 66-year-old man has died after he was trampled by a herd of cattle in Wiltshire.

It's understood the man and his elderly brother were walking their dog through fields near Turleigh on Monday, when something spooked the cows and they stampeded.

Both men were able to escape from the field but suffered serious chest injuries. The 66-year-old died later in hospital.
