Bull-run festival comes to an end in Pamplona
15:06 CEST+02:00
Pamplona's San Fermin Festival ended with a rousing singalong in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The Local takes a look at some of the most striking images from the last few days of Spain's famous - and controversial - bull-running fest.

A sea of candles and red neckerchiefs filled Pamplona's Plaza del Ayuntamiento in the early hours of Wednesday morning, as thousands of revellers bid farewell to another year's San Fermin festival.

Never short of controversy, this year's festival saw ten gorings and many more injuries, including two Americans and a British man, while activists protested against sexual assaults that are becoming all too frequent at the annual fiesta. 

And while there were no deaths at Pamplona, a Frenchman was gored to death at a bull festival in Alicante earlier this week. 

During the final days of San Fermin, an animal rights activist jumped into Pamplona's bullring to protest against the spectacle, which is increasingly facing calls to be banned. 

As another year's San Fermin festival comes to an end, The Local takes a look at some of the most striking images from the closing runs and the party that followed.
