A giant skeleton of a dinosaur which last roamed Earth more than 150 million years ago has fetched £400,000 at auction.
The 55ft (17m) specimen of the long-necked Diplodocus longus went under the hammer at Summers Place Auctions in Billingshurst, West Sussex.
The sale of the female skeleton, 19ft (6m) tall and nicknamed "Misty", was the first UK auction of a large dinosaur skeleton, according to experts.
