Stolen Fossil Tracks Footprints BBC (Evolution Research: John Latter / Jorolat)From BBC News (UK): Stolen fossilised dinosaur footprints, 200 million years old and from a protected site, have been found after being advertised on eBay.

The three-toed prints, from coastline near Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan, had been offered for sale online and in a shop at Lyme Regis in Dorset.

The Countryside Council for Wales (CCW) realised they could have come only from the Bendrick Rock site.

A man described as a local amateur geologist has been cautioned by police.
