A spoof sign said: “The first Yorkshiresaurus was recently discovered in Leeds and carefully excavated.

"The Yorkshiresaurus is a friendly plant eating dinosaur from 200 million years ago.

"It’s tail shows a close resemblance to rhubarb and its feet look like Yorkshire Puddings.

"Plus, we now know where the Yorkshire ‘Y’ comes from.

"Although very friendly, its Viking style horns kept predators at bay.

"If you look carefully, the White Rose of Yorkshire can be seen on his skin and the roar seems to have a Yorkshire twang.”
