Police in the UK stumbled across a 'dinosaur' while on patrol over the weekend.

In a video posted on Twitter, officers in Plymouth can be seen following someone dressed up in a dinosaur costume. 

"Just another late shift in Plymouth," the Charles Cross Police Team wrote in a Twitter post sharing the video.

Officers can be heard laughing uncontrollably on the dashcam footage, saying: "We can confirm the Doyouthinkhesawus is not extinct and they can run real fast."

"You wonder how they became extinct, don't you?"
