Vandalism has again hit the model dinosaurs on Exmouth’s Jurassic Safari trail.

For the second time, a baby Tyrannosaurus rex in Madeira Walk has had its head removed.

This follows previous incidents in which a baby triceratops in Gunfield Gardens, and a stegosaurus in The Strand, were damaged.

Town management officer Suzanne Birkett said a meeting would be held with CCTV operators, police, businesses and the Exmouth Town Team to find a way to deal with the ongoing problems, which she said were ‘frustrating’.

The trail was organised by the town team with Exmouth Town Council, East Devon District Council and the Jurassic Coast Team.
