A 26-year-old passenger has died after a car collided with a tree at Camperdown Park.
It is understood a black Ford lost control at Coupar Angus Road, near the A923, and collided with a tree just before 11pm on Sunday.
Police confirmed the 26-year-old man, who was travelling in the vehicle, died at the scene.

A section of Camperdown Golf Course was cordoned off by police following the incident and a staff member, who did not want to be named, said police had remained at the scene throughout the day.
He said: “I hadn’t heard anything until I came into work (on Monday). We don’t know much about it but it’s horrible that it’s cost someone their life.”
