Golfers needed hospital treatment after a pair of large pigs charged on to a course and attacked them.

The animals, thought to be Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs, caused chaos by storming the green and digging holes. 

Club member David Mckidd, 40, said they were first spotted at the Lightcliffe Golf Club in Halifax, West Yorkshire, on Sunday, injuring a man by causing cuts to his leg.
