Visitors to Marwell Zoo in Hampshire will come face to face with dinosaurs this spring, as the attraction launches its Brickosaurs! Lego exhibition.

The display will run until September 1.

The event includes a gargantuan 26ft (8m) long Tyrannosaurus rex, which organisers say is the largest touring Lego brick dinosaur model ever made.
