The T-Rex was lifted into the garden by a crane.

A shocked woman got the fright of her life when she turned on her outside light in the middle of the night - and came face-to-face with a huge T-Rex.

We reported yesterday (Thursday) that Adrian Shaw got a 3.5 metre dinosaur delivered by crane into his back garden in Grange Road, Lillington, as a surprise for his wife, Deborah - click here to read the original story.

But the surprise did not turn out how he had hoped.

The T-Rex in the garden.

The great unveiling was delayed after Deborah went to her fitness class straight after work and it was too dark for her to see the huge T-Rex when she returned.

So Adrian hoped to surprise her in the morning by opening the bedroom blinds and revealing the new garden feature.

But their dog had other ideas.

Adrian said: "The dog woke her up at 4am to take him out into the garden for a wee.

The T-Rex was lifted into the garden by a crane.

"Whilst I slept soundly she lead the dog downstairs, opened the back door for him and then put the powerful garden security light on.

"She recounted the experience to me in what can only be described as 'colourful terms' this morning, it didn't sound very pleasant."

However, Adrian said he is confident that he can still win her around and keep the dinosaur that he has called Dave.

He added: "Both the kids are begging and pleading to allow Dave to stay, which is a bit sad because they are both well into their twenties.

"The wife will start to appreciate Dave's magnificence over the weekend."
