Biggest protest action ever in Dundee?

Yesterday’s protest action in Dundee – ostensibly against the Mayor, delays in promised housing projects, alleged corruption, appointments in the municipality and other issues – resulted in damage to road signs and other infrastructure while there were also reports of cars being stoned.

Some people were prevented from going to work and police used stun grenades, plastic bullets and tear gas in a bid to quell the angry crowds.

Shops closed in central Dundee as groups of protesters moved up and down the central area. A representative from the Premier’s office did apparently arrive in the late afternoon to address the crowd at the municipality where a memorandum was read out and accepted. At least five schools closed early as a result of the protest with many school children joining the march.

Aerial footage of the protest revealed the extent of the anger:
