Replica dinosaur to be built in Bristol

A team from the University of Bristol is working with a local artist to create a life-sized replica of the dinosaur Thecodontosaurus.

The first fossils of the creature - known as the Bristol Dinosaur - were discovered near what is now Bristol Zoo in 1834.

Scientists say the species, which was a metre high and two metres long, roamed the area more than 210 million years ago.
