Police worked with the coastguard, Broughty Ferry lifeboat and a rescue helicopter but the man, believed to be in his 20s or 30s, has not been found.

Police are appealing for information as they investigate the incident and try to locate the man’s next of kin.

“Police Scotland are keen to identify the male and understand the reason for him entering the water,” a police spokesman said.
