There may have been talk of a 39-storey skyscraper for Dundee sometime in the future but a new addition to the city skyline has sprung up much quicker.
Folk in the city centre were shocked to see a huge crane towering above Dundee House this morning.
“It wasn’t there yesterday,” said one startled onlooker.
The crane, which is already among Dundee’s tallest structures, is being deployed for maintenance works on the council building.
A spokeswoman said the crane will be in place for the next few weeks while the work is carried out.
