A consultation on flood prevention in Dundee is being held by the city council.

Proposed works include raising the sea wall and installing flood gates at various points along the River Tay between City Quay and Dundee Airport.

Dundee City Council said it intended to carry out work "as funding becomes available".

The public consultation will last 28 days. The plans will be on display in Dundee House.

Will Dawson, convener of the council's city development committee, said: "These works, which could include raising the height of the existing sea wall and installing flood gates, are designed to reduce the risk of flooding to residential, community and business properties as well as open space.

"Anyone who objects to the plans, which are on display in Dundee House, can do so in writing and once the consultation is complete we will bring forward more details."
