A gay bull saved after a campaign backed by Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon appears to have found romance within minutes of arriving at his new home.

Benjy, from County Mayo, Ireland, was destined for the abattoir after showing more interest in breeding with other bulls than cows.

He arrived at Norfolk's Hillside Animal Sanctuary on Sunday where he befriended Alex, a one-year-old bullock.

"He's a handsome little lad, so you can't blame him," said a spokeswoman.

Mr Simon said it "thrills" him to have helped Benjy.

Stefanie Leary, yard manager at Hillside, said: "Benjy's here because he's gay and is of no use to the farming industry. This has happened to have saved his life.
"Today has gone reasonably well. He's travelled a long distance and is stressed, but he's coping with it well."
