The Natural History Museum has shared timelapse footage of the process it undertook to install a massive blue whale skeleton in its entrance hall.

Dippy the dinosaur, the plaster cast of a diplodocus that has reared over visitors to the museum's central, now "Hintze", hall since 1979, has gone.

THE Duchess of Cambridge boned up on her natural history last night when she came face to face with a monster of the deep. The museum chose to name the whale "Hope" saying it was "a symbol of humanity's power to shape a sustainable future".

But the museum said the skeleton of the blue whale, the largest animal to have lived on Earth and which has been hunted to near extinction, would better raise awareness of mankind's impact on nature.

Up until recently the whale skeleton had been hanging in the mammals gallery.

The other six teams in the global league will be New York City, San Francisco , Los Angeles , Miami-Orlando, Shanghai and Seoul . The $20 million buy-in is a hefty price, considering MLS teams could be purchased for as little as $10 million a decade ago.

Hintze Hall is due to reopen to the public on Friday following six months of refurbishment, and its displays will include a dinosaur fossil - an 120 million-year-old Mantellisaurus, found on the Isle of Wight in 1917.
