A Dundee beauty spot has been reopened to the public following a police investigation earlier this week.
Tayside Police Division confirmed its probe into the alleged attempted murder of Linda McDonald at Templeton Woods, and neighbouring Clatto Park, has concluded.
A heavy police presence was in place around the area following the incident on Monday, August 7; with officers maintaining a cordon in the days afterwards.
A police statement said: “Templeton Woods is now back to normal for the public. Thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding.”
Locals in the area reported seeing scores of police vans and cars lining the road toward Clatto reservoir on the day, while dog walkers continued to use the remaining open paths.
Robbie McIntosh, 31, appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court in private accused of the attempted murder of Ms McDonald on Wednesday.
She is currently in a serious condition in Ninewells hospital, where she is being treated for a head injury after apparently being struck repeatedly with a dumbbell.
The attempted murder charge alleges McIntosh repeatedly struck Linda McDonald, 52, on the head and body with a dumbbell, rendering her unconscious before dragging her along a path – to her permanent impairment and disfigurement, to the danger of her life and did attempt to murder her.
The second charge alleges McIntosh attempted to defeat the ends of justice – having allegedly committed the crime in charge one – by washing his clothes to conceal and destroy any evidence.
