Shops in Diss have taken a step back into the land that time forgot as they get into the prehistoric spirit of this year's carnival.

This year the Diss Carnival has a pun-laden prehistoric theme — Pre-Diss-Toric — and takes place on Sunday, June 9.

That has seen entrants let their imaginations run riot with decorations including everything from roaring T-Rex to dinosaur eggs to cavemen and women knitted from wool. Clothes shops have taken their cue from the theme to have plenty of animal print fashions.

Photo Elite have got creative with Photoshop for a display of black and white images featuring dinosaurs terrorising the town; while Diss Town Council has transformed its staff in characters from The Flintstones.
