Residents watched on as the 3.5-metre replica of a rampaging T-Rex was delivered to the garden in Grange Road today (Thursday September 3) by crane.Adrian said: "This project is a result of my wife's request to make the garden 'look nice'.

"I thought nothing could possibly look nicer in the garden than a 3.5 metre replica of a rampaging T-Rex, so I bought one.

"I guess that it is most people's dream to own a 3.5 metre replica of a rampaging T-Rex but they don't have the space or resources to do this.

"I have been very fortunate to be able to realise the dream."

His next job is to of persuade his wife that it should stay.

"I imagine my wife will be delighted when she sees what I have done with the garden when she gets home from work," he said.

"She loves the Jurassic Park films and watches all the David Attenborough documentaries, so I couldn't go wrong with the purchase really."
