A meeting will take place this evening over a 60 million pound plan to turn a dis-used quarry into a dinosaur museum
The visitor centre - called Jurassica - would open on Portland in Dorset in around 2019. It would see a glass roof over the limestone quarry and include an aquarium and animatronics. Early designs have been drawn up by Renzo Piano - the same man behind the shard in London
One of the rarest and largest dinosaur skeletons ever discovered is on show to the public ahead of its sale at auction in Sussex. The 17-metre long Diplodocus is expected to attract potential buyers from all over the world, as Richard Slee reports.
