Two men have been taken to hospital after a disturbance at a flat in Broughty Ferry.
Police and paramedics were called to the flat at the top end of Church Street at around 8am on Thursday.
The area was busy at the time with people dropping off pupils at Eastern Primary School next door, and youngsters making their way to Grove Academy.
Locals told of seeing several police vehicles and an ambulance at the scene.
‘Unusually large police presence’
One parent, who was dropping off his children at Eastern, said there was an “unusually large police presence in the area”.
He said: “I saw four police cars and vans parked on Church Street and officers and paramedics were seen entering the building.
“There were also a number of officers outside the block of flats and in the street.
I was shocked to see such a big emergency service presence so early in the morning
“It was unclear what the incident was but there was a large build-up of traffic as a result of the activity, which was occurring as parents were dropping off children at the school.”
Another passerby said: “I saw one man being taken away to hospital in the ambulance.
“There was a large number of police around the property.
“I was shocked to see such a big emergency service presence so early in the morning – particularly at school time with many Eastern and Grove pupils standing around watching.”
Police have remained at the scene for much of the day.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Officers were made aware of a disturbance within a property on Church Street in Broughty Ferry around 8am on Thursday.
“A 23-year-old man has been taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee with serious injuries.
“A 29-year-old man has also been taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment.
