Police have issued a description of a man seen jumping off the Tay Road Bridge as they work to establish his identity.

The man fell from the Fife side of the bridge into the River Tay at around 3.40pm on New Year’s Day.

Officers said they need to identify the man and try to find him but have so far had no-one reported missing to them who matches his description.

The man is described as white and in his 50s. He was wearing a dark tammy-style hat, a large black winter coat over a dark green jumper or shirt, grey jeans and black shoes.

He was seen to be smoking a cigarette he had taken from a tobacco pouch.

The man entered the bridge walkway from the Dundee end and was seen to jump off the bridge closer to the Fife side.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or speak to a police officer.
