Police attended a city centre hotel following the sudden death of a man.
Officers and a number of police vehicles were spotted attending the incident at the Queen’s Hotel in the Nethergate.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said the death of the 61-year-old man is not being treated as suspicious, but as with all sudden deaths investigations require to be carried out.
A nearby shopkeeper said he saw police outside the hotel — adding he was “shocked” to hear what had happened.
He said: “It must have been about midday that I saw them because it was when I went to put the Tele billboards out.
“There was a police van parked outside but I didn’t know what was happening.
“I’m shocked to hear what has happened — I never saw an ambulance outside.”
Mark Wright, 54, said: “I saw a couple of police cars parked down the road.
“They were there for a good couple of hours. I was at a training course at the hotel.”
Another passer-by said: “I saw the police arrive around 9am — they’ve not long left.
“Its upsetting to hear that someone may have died.
“I thought it might have been serious when I saw the number of police officers who were there.”
The manager of the hotel declined to comment when approached by the Tele.
A police spokesman said: “The death is not thought to be suspicious and inquiries are continuing.”
The Queen’s Hotel was opened in 1878 by Dundee wine merchant Col Smith as a “station hotel” in anticipation of the imminent arrival of the railway station.
Over the years it played host to historical figures including Frank Sinatra and Winston Churchill.
