The skeletons of several scelidosaurs are to go on display in Bristol for the first time.

The remains of an adult and two young dinosaurs, which were found in Dorset eight years ago, include their teeth and some remains of their last meal.

It is thought the creatures were part of a herd that was swept out to sea 200 million years ago, and drowned.

The remains will go on show at Bristol's Museum and Art Gallery from Friday 6 June.
