Terrifying 14-foot long dinosaur takes over Granary Wharf

Shoppers and residents in Leeds City Centre had the fright of their lives this morning when its newest resident made its way onto Granary Wharf.

Luckily, the 99-million-year-old Spinosaurus was merely an animatronic recreation, put there as part of the Leeds Jurassic Trail.

The feat, organised by Leeds Business Improvement District, features the giant north African spine lizard (let’s call him “Spiney”) along with 11 of his mates, across the city centre, and will be sticking around for the rest of the summer holidays.

We decided to pay Spiney a visit, and watched as its handlers safely helped him into the wharf.
