You wouldn't expect to see this crossing the Clifton Suspension Bridge! But today 'Denzel' the dinosaur did just that.

Denzel is one of eleven huge, life-like animatronic dinosaurs making Bristol Zoo their home for the next three.

Today, traffic was brought to a standstill for a short time when one dinosaur 'escaped' from the Zoo and took over the Suspension Bridge!

The dinosaur is in fact a 4m long costume, similar to a T-Rex, with life-like blinking eyes, moving body parts and sound effects. Almost 2m tall, it did cause a bit of a stir in Clifton where passersby stopped to take photos and videos.

The dinosaurs are set to make further appearances across Bristol this summer.
