A herd of dinosaurs brought a spinechilling touch of the Jurassic era to Castle Mall this week.

Children were able to follow a trail around the shopping centre to find dinosaurs that had escaped and were hiding.

All budding archaeologists could head to the St Johns area of the centre where they dug for bones and dusted down their discoveries.

The Kastle Kids team were in their new location reading the stories Dinosaurs in my School and Dinosaurs in the Supermarket.

More than 300 children attended the event with more than half making their own dinosaur to take home with them.

Robert Bradley, centre manager, said: 'We really enjoyed having the dinosaur roadshow come to Castle Mall and hope that children learned from the event as well as enjoyed themselves.'

The event was organised to encourage children to learn about dinosaurs and teach them about fossils.
