Drivers find road blocked by a Triceratops

Isle of Wight residents were left perplexed earlier this month by a dinosaur in the middle of the road.
The huge prehistoric reptile, which authorities in Godshill believed had been moved in to the road by pranksters who had stolen it from a nearby garden, ended up completely blocking off the high street.

The model's owner, Martin Simpson, runs a local shop selling prehistoric gems and fossils.


"It takes about five blokes to move the dinosaur a couple of inches, so it was definitely a concerted effort and drink was probably involved," he said of the incident.

Thankfully local authorities were eventually able to move the dinosaur back to where it belonged.
