<b>News of the day in so many words:</b> Cows trample woman to death; swine flu spreads and 0AP run over by car thief

Published on June 23rd 2009.

A WARRINGTON woman has been trampled to death by a herd of cows as she walked her dogs. The unnamed vet was pronounced dead at the scene on Pennine Way after what the National Farmers’ Union have called a “dreadful but rare incident”. It is thought the normally docile cows may have felt threatened by the dogs and turned aggressive.

ARROWE PARK hospital has confirmed a second case of swine flu.
