Appeal to reunite toy dinosaur lost on motorway near Coventry with owner

A dinosaur has been discovered on the M1 - and the toy's owner could live in the West Midlands.

An appeal has been launched to reunite the creature with its owner, who is yet to be identified.


It was found on a Midlands stretch of the motorway on Sunday.

Highways England officers initially thought it was just debris.

But they attended the scene between the junctions for Northampton and Coventry on Sunday after spotting it on CCTV.

It was found shortly after a man was seen changing a tyre at the side of the road.

"We are hoping to reunite a toy dinosaur with its owner," officials from the East Midlands branch wrote on Twitter.

"Traffic officers are looking after it for you," they added.

A spokesman for Highways England said: "They stopped when they noticed debris in the road.


"This turned out to be a toy dinosaur."

They also urged motorists in a similar situation to attempt to reach the nearest emergency area.

If this is not possible, however, they should move into lane one and exit the vehicle when it is safe to do so.
