JURASSIC TIMES: Giant Dinosaur fossil found on Yorkshire beach

JURASSIC TIMES: Giant Dinosaur fossil found on Yorkshire beach

Supposed fossil of 'Megalosaurus' which lived between 175 and 164 million years ago has been found on Yorkshire's coast. 

The fossil was spotted by archaeologist Marie Woods who was collecting shellfish but got completely distracted by this colosuss artifact.

The discovery has been described as a 'real Jurassic giant' and it is said to be the largest unearthed print in the country.

Experts believe it was left by a large meat-eating dinosaur with a body length of up to 30ft (9m).

Ms Wood says it is in "a fragile state" and is in danger of being "lost to the sea".

Plans are being put in place to recover the print and if successful, it will go on display at the Rotunda Museum in Scarborough.
