A graveyard in Dundee city centre was cordoned off by police after a body was found.
Officers taped off the entrances to The Howff after the discovery on Monday morning.
Forensics officers later arrived at the scene.
Barrack Street was initially closed but later reopened.
The police cordon was later been lifted.
The death of the person is being treated as “unexplained”.
However, police confirmed there are “no apparent suspicious circumstances”.
Locals said there was a police presence since from around 9.30am on Monday.
One passer-by said: “Police have erected a cordon around the perimeter of The Howff.
“They weren’t letting anyone walk on that side of Meadowside for a while but that restriction has now been lifted.
‘It’s such a shame’
“Officers are guarding all entrances and you can see them at the back of the cemetery near construction fencing.”
A worker in a nearby shop said: “Police arrived at the scene around 9.30am.
“I’ve not seen anyone in white suits but supposedly they’ve found a body.
“It’s such a shame if they have.”
Another worker on Bank Street said: “The forensics officers were leaving the scene with bags and bags of evidence.
“All I know is police have been there all day.”
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 9.20am on Monday, 27 November, we were made aware of the body of a man found in the Ward Road area of Dundee.
“The death is being treated as unexplained but there are no apparent suspicious circumstances.
“A report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.”
The age and gender of the person have not been confirmed.
The Howff is one of Dundee’s most important historic sites, having been granted to the city as a burial ground by Mary Queen of Scots in 1564
