It was almost a scene from a Boy's Own adventure when a cub pack pitched its camp beneath the fossilised skeletons of terrifying giant lizards.

Cubs from the 4th Enfield scout group spent the night in the dinosaur gallery at the Natural History Museum, in South Kensington.

The group were taking part in the museum's DinoSnores event last week, in which groups explore the dinosaur gallery by torchlight, and get to sleep in the shadow of a Diplodocus skeleton.

Cub Scout Keri Cannur, nine, said: “I loved going to DinoSnores. I enjoyed learning about spiders and dinosaurs. We got to mix art with science when we made our T-shirts and I had a lot of fun staying overnight in a museum."
