More than 100,000 people have seen Dippy the dinosaur at the Ulster Museum.

This week marks the last chance to visit the famous diplodocus, which is on loan from the London's Natural History Museum as part of a UK-wide tour.

After next Sunday, January 6, the 292-bone structure will be dismantled and packed into 16 crates in a specially prepared vehicle to journey on to Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

Aaron Ward, head of creative engagement at National Museums NI, said: "The visitor response to Dippy has been phenomenal, with well over 100,000 visitors having seen Dippy already."
