The walking replica Tyrannosaurus Rex delighted crowds in Market Square and Marketgate on Friday.

Thousands packed into the city centre as Rex the T-Rex appeared as part of Dino-Day, a special half-term event organised by Lancaster Business Improvement District (BID).

The T-Rex and his keeper kept people entertained with their antics which included cheeky Rex photo-bombing as bystanders took selfies. The dinosaur even wandered into the Marketgate butcher’s shop in search of meat. Other activities on Dino-Day included a Lancaster City Museum dinosaur trail, face painting, a fun fair in Market Square and a screening of the film Jurassic Park at the Dukes Cinema.
