A 49-year-old man has died after he was found seriously injured in a Dundee street.
Police yesterday launched an appeal to help identify the man who was discovered on Charleston Drive close to the junction with Spey Drive at about 6.30pm yesterday.
He has since been named as Nigel Poustie, who succumbed to his injuries in Ninewells Hospital this afternoon.
Police have now launched an investigation into his tragic death.
Witnesses described seeing him fall over on several occasions, prior to medical help being called for him.
Locals also described a large police presence in the Menzieshill area last night. Gregor Stefanski, 41, came back to his flat to find the area sealed off.
He said: “The forensics people were taking photos of a bush and the area around that was taped off.
“A police officer escorted me to my flat and told me to stay away from the grass and keep on the path.
“I think it must have been about 9pm that the police left the area.
“It was all over pretty quickly. They took their pictures and then took the tape away. The injured person was found next to the bush apparently.”
A statement from Police Scotland read: “Nigel is described as being of medium build and at the time of the incident was wearing a dark jacket and black ‘tammy’ hat with a red band around it.
“Police Scotland officers would like to speak to anyone who may have seen or had contact with Nigel at any time yesterday, particularly in relation to any sightings of him in Charleston Drive, Dundee at the time he was found.
“Family members of Mr Poustie have been made aware and, as with all sudden deaths, a report is being submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
“Anyone with information can speak to a local officer or phone Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 2868 of 04 July 2016.
