A man’s body has been found at an address in Dundee.
Police have confirmed the find at the property in the Clifden Blue Court area of the city.
A police spokesman said: “The death is being treated as unexplained, and a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.”
Paramedics were called to the flat at around 10am this morning following concerns for a resident.
They had to request the assistance of police with riot shields and council dog wardens after coming up against a dog in the property.
Officers used “specialist equipment” – believed to be full-body riot shields – to protect themselves from the animal while wardens leashed the dog and removed it from the flat.
One local resident, who declined to be named, said: “I thought something bad had happened when all the emergency services turned up.
“There was an ambulance, then the police appeared out of nowhere with their sirens going.
“I could hear a dog barking.
“It must have been something to do with the dog because the dog wardens then arrived.”
Two police vehicles were on the scene as they dealt with the incident.
Waiting paramedics were able to enter the property once the dog had been removed.
The Scottish Ambulance Service and Dundee City Council have been asked to comment but had not responded at the time of going to press.
