The force also dismissed earlier reports that Mr Thomson had been involved in a police pursuit shortly before falling from the multi.

A police spokesman said in a statement: “Shortly after 4.30pm, we were notified of an injured man having been found on the ground in the immediate vicinity of Adamson Court in Lochee.

“This was the first awareness by Police Scotland of the incident.

“Despite medical interventions, the man succumbed to his injuries.

“Officers are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the death which is being treated at this time as unexplained.”

Superintendent Graeme Murdoch of Tayside Division said: “I can categorically confirm at this stage that officers of Police Scotland had no involvement whatsoever in the circumstances leading up to this tragic incident.

“We were neither seeking the man concerned in relation to other inquiries, nor was there any kind of pursuit or contact by officers prior to the incident.

“While it is important that communities in Dundee have confidence that officers did not in any way contribute to the circumstances, it is even more important that the man’s family know what happened and that is our priority today.

“Our thoughts are with his family and friends as they try to deal with this tragic incident.”
