Dinosaur roadblock bemuses motorists

Why did the triceratops cross the road?

Motorists on the Isle of Wight have been confronted with a giant triceratops blocking the main road through Godshill.

It's thought alcohol may have had a part to play in the prank, after the dinosaur was moved from its regular home in the garden of a fossil and gem shop.

The owner reckons it must have taken five hefty lads to move Godshilla, who of course is named after her home village.

Lots of people took to social media to share their photos.

Godshilla's owner, Martin Simpson said "It's great people are talking about it, but I wouldn't want to encourage anybody to cause a hazard for traffic."
