Police and a lifeboat were scrambled to the Tay Road Bridge last night following concerns for a man on the bridge.
Officers received a call to attend on the bridge at around 11.05pm yesterday.
An in-shore lifeboat from RNLI Broughty Ferry was also called at around 11.20pm, but was called off after the man was successfully contacted by officers.
A police spokeswoman confirmed officers had attended on the bridge due to “concerns for the welfare and safety of a man”.
She said: “Officers were able to speak to the man and the situation was dealt with shortly thereafter. The man was given advice and assistance and was safely removed.”
A spokesman for HM Coastguard said: “We were called to assist police officers with an incident on the Tay Road Bridge. However, we were stood down before our services were required.”
