Faulty traffic lights and a broken down lorry caused traffic chaos in Dundee on Tuesday.

Traffic lights on the A90 Forfar Road at Morrison’s supermarket went out just after 11am while an HGV broke down on Powrie Brae.

The two incidents led to major delays for drivers.

A spokesman for Police Scotland’s Tayside Division said they were aware of the incident and that efforts to repair the lights are underway.

The A90 southbound was closed for several hours last week after a multi-vehicle collision close to Tinkle Tap farm.
