A man has been flouting Spain’s Coronavirus quarantine rules by taking out the rubbish.. while dressed as a dinosaur.

Police officers stopped the man while he was wearing a Tyrannosaurus rex costume and gave him a warning before he walked away from a street-side bin.

The incident happened just a couple of days into a government-imposed lockdown.

Residents are tourists are currently banned from going outside unless they re buying food, going to work or going to get medical help for 15 days. 

Even with the added precautions, the coronavirus death toll in Spain has hit 491 as cases skyrocketed by 1,987 to 11,178 in just 24 hours.
