The remains of a carnivorous dinosaur, common in the United States but believed to be unknown in Britain, have been unearthed in the Isle of Wight. The find, made by staff at the island's geological musuem, may be a close relative of Allosaurus which roamed across America 150 million years ago. The exact location of the find is being kept secret. Steve Hutt, curator of the museum, said he believed the creature was a long-faced, fast-moving predator 25 to 35ft long, which lived in the area around 120 million years ago. The find was made during a re-dig of an existing site.
