The 2014 San Fermin festival has opened with the annual bull run through the cobbled streets of Pamplona, Spain.

Five half-tonne charging bulls and six steers tore along a winding 848.6m course in just under two and a half minutes, injuring five runners.

A 52-year-old Spaniard was gored in the the groin area, while another four men were taken to hospital for various unspecified injuries.
