Residents have said it was lucky no one was seriously injured after a “dangerous” wall collapsed during Storm Ali.
The concrete garden wall, on Earn Crescent in Menzieshill, came crashing down as 100mph winds swept through Dundee.
Lynne Robson, who lives in the block of flats where the wall collapsed, said she heard an almighty crash around 1.30pm.
The 52-year-old said: “I rushed to the window to look out just in time to see the wall crashing to the ground.
“It collapsed all over the pavement.
“Thank goodness no one was walking on the pavement at the time. I dread to think what would have happened.
“The blocks are heavy and solid. Someone could very easily have been very badly hurt.
“It’s really busy here with people going to work at Ninewells, so it’s incredibly lucky no one was on the pavement when the wall collapsed.
“The council need to get here now and clear the blocks away because they are blocking the pavement and some are also on the road.
“I’m also worried because there’s still a part of the wall left standing which now must be incredibly unstable.
“It needs to be taken down safely before it falls down too, again risking the safety of passers-by.
“Imagine if a child had been passing.”
Another resident said: “I reported the wall as dangerous to Dundee City Council almost a full year ago.
“It’s a matter of luck that no one was seriously injured by the collapse.”
A Dundee City Council spokesman said: “The council will be clearing the debris and will be looking to replace the wall as soon as possible.
“We will be investigating the circumstances behind this collapse.”
