A man has died after being attacked by a bull on Tuesday afternoon on a farm outside Båstad in southern Sweden.

An ambulance was dispatched to the scene at 3.30pm but medical staff were unable to save the victim's life.

Police are investigating whether to classify the incident as an accident in the workplace.

"This means for example that we will examine the site and question anyone who may have witnessed what happened," police spokesman Calle Persson told news agency TT.
