Family warning after cattle death

The family of a woman killed when she was attacked by a herd of cattle wants to warn others of the dangers the animals can pose.

Marion Clode was "flipped like a ragdoll" over a fence by an aggressive animal while walking in Belford, Northumberland.

The 61-year-old, from Greater Manchester, died two days later in hospital.

She was walking with her family along a public bridle path which runs through a farm from the National Trust site, St Cuthbert's Cave, when they were approached at speed by a herd of cattle.

Daughter Lucy Rowe said one of the herd became aggressive, approached Mrs Clode and "repeatedly headbutted" her.
