By Victoria Chessum

A true-to-life model dinosaur has been delivered at an animal reserve via crane.

Port Lympne Animal Reserve near Hythe saw the 1.6m tall Spinosaurus which weights 20 tonnes delivered to its site.

At 18 metres long the new arrival will be placed at the Dinosaur Forest.

A Port Lympne spokesman said: "The Spinosaurus, a beast too large for the biggest trailer at Port Lympne, had to be lifted by a crane and walked through the reserve encountering rhino and gorillas along its way.

"Now proudly positioned in the Dinosaur Forest the Spinosaurus is ready to set hearts racing."

It will sit alongside among other dinosaurs of different kinds.

The Spinosaurus was accompanied into the forest.

The reserve continues to expand its woodland so people can see what the dinosaurs would have looked like if they still existed today.
