If you live or work in London you’ll be used to seeing unusual sights – but have you ever seen anything like this before?

Transport for London’s traffic news Twitter feed shared pictures this morning of a dead dinosaur in transit on the back of a truck.

The CCTV images taken near Trafalgar Square show the ‘creature’ wrapped in a white sheet with blood stains on.

Other people have been sharing pictures of the giant beast seen on their morning commute.

It turns out the Nat Geo TV channel was responsible for the bizarre sight.

The dinosaur was being transported ahead of the channel showing a T-Rex Autopsy show later this week in which scientists will be examining the huge carcass.
