VIDEO: It's 'Jurassic World' at Spalding's St John the Baptist School

Children at a Spalding primary school came face-to-face with a seven metre long 'T-Rex' in their own playground.

The very life-like four-year-old dinosaur, called Donald, was brought into Spalding St John the Baptist C of E Primary School, by Suffolk firm Dino Hire.

With the clever use of animatronics the dinosaur realistically moved around the playground, baring his teeth, and igniting excitement from the children.

It was a special surprise for the pupils and came following an enterprise project where they held a bring and buy sale, which raised £200. Funds from the sale went towards the dinosaur visit.
