Hundreds of children enjoying the start of half-term managed to get a special glimpse of the incredibly life-like historic creature, who popped up at the shopping centre at various times throughout the day.

As well as getting to meet the baby T-Rex, families were able to join in with free arts and crafts activities, as well as set off on a dino trail around the Buttermarket.

There was also a chance for children to grab a quick selfie with a giant dinosaur egg, which was another part of the special 'Dinosaur Roars' event.

Ahead of the event a spokesman for Ipswich Buttermarket said: "Adults and children of all ages love dinosaurs. They are always a huge attraction and are a guaranteed talking point.

"Having previously graced the Royal Albert Hall, been live on Channel 4, the BBC, MTV and ITV, they really are the most realistic of their kind in the UK."
