A man found lying in the road with a serious head injury on New Year’s Day has died.

The 67-year-old was found by a member of the public at the junction of Mains Road and Bayne Square, in the Hilltown area of Dundee at around 11pm on January 1.

He was helped into a nearby house and then taken to hospital but died on Tuesday.

Police are treating the death as unexplained but said there do not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.

They are appealing for any witnesses to contact them , including a taxi driver who had to manoeuvre his vehicle around the male and also the driver of a saloon vehicle, which may have been a red Audi.

Officers would particularly like to speak to four men who were walking on Mains Road and who helped the injured man into a nearby house.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or speak to any officer, quoting incident 663 of January 2, 2018.

Information can also be passed anonymously through the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
