The 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe has officially begun with more than 3,000 shows catering for a wide range of tastes.

Organisers say the arts festival, the largest in the world, will be the biggest in its history.

There will be 49,497 performances of 3,193 shows across the city, an 11% increase on last year's programme.

The BBC's John Maguire met up with some of the performers, including comedian Frank Skinner - who had a close encounter with a dinosaur.
