HSBC has said it has confirmed the site of its new Dundee branch, with the creation of 18 jobs in the city.

The branch, which will also have a commercial centre, will be at 25-29 Murraygate. It is the first time HSBC has had a presence in Dundee.

Work on the site is due to begin in early 2012.

HSBC said it was part of a £9m expansion into Scotland, with new branches also confirmed in Aberdeen and Falkirk.

A new HSBC bank in Stirling opened in August.
