Officers are keen to trace the driver of a transit van travelling on A90 Dundee to Aberdeen this morning (Thursday) after a barrel fell from the van onto the road.
The van was travelling southwards on the road at about 9.45 a.m. near to the Spittalburn junction when the barrel broke loose and lodged under another lorry.
The road was closed for a short time while police made enquiry.
If anyone know whose the driver of the van is please get in touch with Police Scotland, Tayside Division on 101, or any police officer. Alternatively information can be passed anonymously via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
