The remarkable tracks of a predatory dinosaur have been discovered at a quarry in Oxfordshire by scientists. This is the first discovery of its kind anywhere in Britain. The tracks were left as the dinosaur, a close relative of the famous meat-eater Tyrannosaurus Rex, first walked then started running, probably chasing a meal. They most likely belong to a 26-foot tall Theropod named Megalosaurus bucklandii, which was the first dinosaur ever identified. Theropods, the only meat-eating dinosaurs, walked upright on two legs. Theropods varied in size but all had a long, muscular tail in relation to their size, which they carried straight out behind them for balance. Their forelimbs were short and they had teeth like knives. The tracks show that these large two-legged dinosaurs, which lived about 163 million years ago, were able to accelerate to almost 20 miles an hour, much faster than previously thought. The findings will alter scientists' ideas about the way it hunted. We knew that the small Theropods could run fast, but before we found these tracks, it wasn't clear if the same was true for large Theropods, said Dr Julia Day. They also show that they walked in a very strange way, with their feet wide apart, almost like a clown with big feet.

What did the tracks show the scientists?

The Festival of the Running of the Bulls in the Spanish city of Pamplona has an extensive history. There is evidence that a similar event took place every October in the 1400s. However, in 1592, the festival was moved to July, when it has been celebrated annually ever since. Official record-keeping began in 1924. Since then, 16 runners have died. The last one was a man called Daniel Romero in 2009. In 1980, two Spaniards were killed in the same race. Last year three people were injured in the festival. Luke Versace, from Australia, and American, Elinzey Sain, were both hurt in the leg, and Paul Staines from London had injuries to his face and arm. Up to one million people travel to the town to join in the festival. It starts with a large firework lit by the mayor of Pamplona. Then, six bulls, weighing up to 750 kilos each, run a kilometre and a half through the city streets. The runners start the race in front of the bulls. This is repeated every morning for nine days, until the end of the festival.
