Dino Dippy 'like huge 3D jigsaw puzzle'

Dippy the diplodocus skeleton is set to leave the Natural History Museum in London to be taken on a national tour. His spot is being taken by the real skeleton of an 83ft (25.2m) female blue whale weighing 4.5 tonnes.

Head of Conservation at the Natural History Museum, Lorraine Cornish, told Radio 4's Today programme they hoped to "reach a lot more people outside London" with the tour.
