Police watchdog probe after man's death at Dundee flats
The police watchdog has launched an investigation following the death of a 33-year-old man in Dundee.
Steven Smeaton was found dead in the city's Forester Street early on 7 September. He is thought to have fallen from a window of a top-floor flat.
The Police Investigations and Review Commissioner's (PIRC) investigation will focus on the police's response to an earlier disturbance.
The case was referred to the commissioner by the force.
A spokesman for PIRC said: "The Police Investigations & Review Commissioner is carrying out an investigation following the death of a 33-year-old man outside a residential property in Dundee on 7 September 2016.
"The investigation will focus on Police Scotland's initial response to a disturbance in the vicinity in the hours prior to the man's death.
"The matter was referred by Police Scotland for investigation and a report on the PIRC's findings will be submitted to the deputy chief constable in due course."
