Dinosaur gone

It's lucky I took a photograph of the Brock Street dinosaur when I did.  I noticed earlier this week that it was missing, and the Lancaster Guardian has explained that it won't be returned to the city centre.

The Massospondylus (a species named by Richard Owen himself) was meant to stand at Owen's birthplace for a couple of months, but last weekend it was found face down in the flower bed with badly damaged front legs, as if somebody had sat on its back.

It's been moved to the nursery (that's plants, not children!) at the council's White Lund depot, near the landfill site.  Wonderful.
