A teen was arrested after a two-hour “stand-off” on the Tay Road Bridge that sparked a major emergency response.
The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The bridge was closed for two hours after the alarm was raised at 2.30am amid concerns for a 19-year-old man on the bridge.
Police, both Broughty Ferry lifeboats, coastguard teams from Carnoustie and St Andrews and an ambulance were at the scene.
The teenager was subsequently led to safety before being arrested in connection with what Police Scotland described as an “outstanding matter”.
A spokesman for HM Coastguard said: “We were alerted at 2.30am yesterday over fears for the safety of a man on the Tay Road Bridge.
“Broughty Ferry lifeboats attended along with coastguard crews from St Andrews and Carnoustie.
“The male involved was in a two hour stand-off with police before being taken into police custody.”
A spokesman for Broughty Ferry lifeboat crew added: “Both lifeboats were on standby at the Tay Road Bridge for around two hours in the early hours of yesterday morning while police dealt with a man on the bridge.
“The man did not enter the water and he was eventually led to safety by police.
“We returned to the lifeboat station around 4.30am.”
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland attended at the Tay Road Bridge after concerns were raised for a man seen on the bridge.
“He was taken safely from the bridge about 4.30am and taken for medical treatment.
“The road required to be closed while the incident was dealt with, and was reopened at its conclusion.”
The spokesman confirmed that the male involved was later arrested “for a matter that was outstanding”.
