A man has been found dead in a park in Aberdeen.

Police and the ambulance service were called to Victoria Park on Westburn Road at about 08:40 after reports of a man lying on the ground.

A Police Scotland spokesman said the death was being treated as unexplained but that there did not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.

The park was cordoned off for several hours while investigations were carried out but has since been reopened.
