Police officers swooped on a city street after a woman was found unconscious in a garden.

The woman was found early in the morning in Langshaw Road, Dryburgh, by shocked residents who called the emergency services.

She was taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment.

Neighbours are understood to have found the woman lying in a front garden shortly after 6am.

Some of her clothes were said to have been found in the street nearby.

A number of residents said the woman had been “partially clothed” when she was discovered.

Neighbours said two ambulances and three police vehicles were called to the scene.

They said police remained in the street well into the evening.

One resident, who declined to be named, said the woman — who is believed to be in her thirties — had been found by passing residents lying unconscious in a front garden, close to the junction with Munro Place.

She said: “The police were here for several hours. I saw at least four or five officers.

“I understand that the woman was found in a front garden and some of her clothes were found in the street.”

Another resident said he did not believe the woman lived locally.

James Allan, 70, who has lived in the area for more than 20 years said: “I was unaware of what had actually happened but there was a police estate car there all day.

“Police haven’t been to my door.

“I thought the police were staying in the area to notify any family members that may have arrived.

“I’m shocked to hear this has happened.”

A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received a call at 6.26am on Thursday March 15 to attend an incident in Langshaw Road, Dundee.

“We dispatched two ambulances to the scene and one female patient in her thirties was transported to Ninewells Hospital.”

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “We attended Langshaw Road around 6.20am on March 15 in response to a woman being found unconscious in a garden.

“She was taken to Ninewells Hospital. Inquiries are ongoing.”
