A trapped gull forced the closure of a busy Dundee Street on Thursday.
Reform Street was closed off to allow the bird to be removed from netting above a building around 6pm.
Scottish Fire and Rescue sent a height appliance to allow fire officers access to the gull.
They successfully freed it.
Reform Street was closed
An eyewitness said: “Police closed the road at the junction with Meadowside, fire service were there with a height appliance.
“Police were directing traffic away and asking people to stay back but a big crowd had gathered to watch.
“I could see the bird’s wing flapping as they tried to untangle it. They got it out but I don’t know how badly injured it was.”
Another eyewitness said: “I saw a van from SSPCA arrive, presumably to check out the the condition of the gull.”
A spokesman for Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: “We were called to reports of a trapped seagull in netting in Reform Street at 5.53pm.
“We sent a height appliance from Blackness Road.”
