Giant dinosaur heading for the Harbourside

Work begins today building Bristol's very own dinosaur.

The Thecodontosaurus is being brought to life at MShed on the city's Harbourside. The full-sized replica is based on the latest scientific discoveries about how it would have looked 210 million years ago.

Remains of the beast were discovered in a south Gloucestershire quarry in the 1970s. Members of the public are invited to view the reconstruction taking place.
