A dinosaur bone which has been in Doncaster for more than half a century has been returned to its rightful home.

Doncaster Council has returned part of a toe from a sauropod to a museum in Scarbor ough, the town where it was discovered in 1837.

It had been loaned to Doncaster Museum from Woodend Museum in 1964 - and has been in South Yorkshire ever since.
