Scientists have recently discovered that a 3 meter dinosaur discovered at Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire over a hundred years ago is in fact an ancient ancestor to tyrannosaurus rex.

Proceratosaurus lived in the Jurassic Period 165 million years ago - about 100 million years before its much larger relative evolved.
