Tayside and Central Scotland

Reports of car-jacking 'wrong'

Police in Tayside said reports last week of a "car-jacking" in Dundee were incorrect.

The force said they had traced the occupants of a Volvo car, which was reportedly involved in a suspicious incident in city's Lochee Road at teatime on Wednesday.

The couple, from Cambridgeshire, had visited friends and were en route to Blairgowrie when they stopped to give a man a lift.

Police said no crime was committed.

They described initial reports as a well-intentioned false alarm.
