A husband shocked his wife after she told him to liven up their garden by installing a 12ft-tall replica of a T-Rex on the patio.

Adrian Shaw, 52, snapped up the 14-stone resin and fiberglass dinosaur and hired a crane to winch it into position on Thursday.

He came up with the idea after wife Deborah, 53, nagged him to clean up the back garden of their home in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.

Mr Shaw, an IT analyst, paid £1,600 for the replica, which he named 'Dave' and put it on the patio outside the kitchen door.

He said: 'This project is a result of my wife's request to make the garden look nice.

'She suggested I clear away the weeds and maybe put a gnome on the patio which got me thinking.

'I thought nothing could possibly look nicer in the garden than a 3.5 metre replica of a rampaging T-Rex, so I bought one.

'I guess that it is most people's dream to own a 3.5 metre replica of a rampaging T-Rex but they don't have the space or resources to do this.
