Prehistoric pay day for Skegness?

One of the country's best known resorts is hoping for a prehistoric pay day as part of its bid to boost tourism. Skegness is doing all it can to bring in the visitors and create dozens of jobs.

There's been a £16m investment at a holiday park and now a developer is ploughing hundreds of thousand of pounds into dinosaurs. It's all happening on the sea front and it's hoped that it'll bring more investment as Kate Hemingway reports.
