Man dies after collapsing in Dundee city centre as police cordon off pavement

Police at the Nethergate in Dundee
An area of Nethergate was taped off by police.

A man has died after collapsing in Dundee city centre.

Emergency services were called to the Nethergate, near the Tesco Express store, just before 10am on Tuesday.

Part of the pavement was taped off while the incident was dealt with.

One eyewitness says paramedics tried to save the man before he was taken to hospital, and that police remained at the scene for around an hour.

Gary Whyte, who called emergency services to the scene, said: “I just saw the guy collapsing.

‘I was quite concerned’

“I was quite concerned for him so I ran into the Tesco and asked someone for help.

“I was already on the phone by then but I couldn’t really speak. I was really shaken.

“The police showed up after about 10 minutes, but the ambulance was there in just a few minutes.”

Another onlooker said: “I walked down just after 10am – maybe a bit later – and the area outside the kebab shop was taped off.

“It didn’t look like a huge police turnout, just a few officers and one vehicle.

“They started packing up quite quickly.”

No suspicious circumstances

A spokesperson for Police Scotland confirmed the death is not thought to have been suspicious.

The spokesperson said: “We were made aware of a man who had taken unwell on Nethergate, Dundee, around 9.50am on Tuesday.

“He was taken to Ninewells Hospital where he died a short time later.

“There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances and a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.”
