A major search on the River Tay in Perth – launched after a reported sighting of a person in the water – has been stood down.
Five fire crews from Perth and Dundee were scrambled to the River Tay, shortly before 7pm on Thursday.
Police Scotland closed the road in and around Tay Street whilst a search operation was carried out in conjunction with the coastguard.
A helicopter was also searching the river.
But after a couple of hours, police were satisfied that no one had entered the water and the operation concluded just after 9pm.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Officers were in attendance at the River Tay in Perth, near Moncrieffe Island, following a reported sighting of what was believed to be a person within the water.
“A multi-agency operation was carried out and the search was stood down at around 9.30pm with no person found in the river.”
