An Isle of Wight schoolboy is celebrating a remarkable beach find – a dinosaur bone!

Ashton Rowsell, 9, was playing on the beach yesterday (Sunday) when he stumbled upon a strange looking stone.

Luckily, his dino-sense kicked in. Ashton’s a keen Youtube viewer and he has studied fossils on the video site.

Experts at Yaverland’s Dinosaur Isle have since confirmed his rock is actually a rare Iguanadon vertebrae (or back bone).
