    The SNP have gained overall control of Dundee City Council winning 15 of the local authority's 29 seats.

    Labour won eight seats, the Scottish Lib Dems four, and the Scottish Conservatives one seat.

    Dundee SNP leader John Alexander said it was a "fantastic" result.

    He said: "We've made fantastic inroads into our two key seats, our vote is up across the city after 10 years in power, which is incredible.

    "I couldn't be any more happy with how we've performed."

  2. Science centre offers helping hand for home-schooling

    Dundee Science Centre sessions

    “Eggs-periments”, mini beasts and creepy crawlies are some of the themes of Dundee Science Centre's new home learning programme.

    The interactive activities are aimed at supporting parents and carers in home schooling during the coronavirus lockdown.

    The interactive sessions are based around videos, worksheets, challenges and weekly competitions.

    The first session challenged children to build their own mini beast trap, discover how strong ants are, and explore spiders which travelled to space.
