Tributes to killed farmer; WORLD.

TRIBUTES have been paid to a farmer who was killed after his bull kicked him in the head and chest.

Joseph Piggott, a distant relative of jockey Lester Piggott, suffered fatal injuries in the attack at his farm in Shocklach, Shropshire, last week. He was 77.

His son Mark, 38, paid tribute to his dad. 'I couldn't have wished for a better father,' he said. 'He was a very loving man who loved his family and loved the farming way of life.'
