As the country came to terms with the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, public figures in Angus paid their own tributes to the late monarch.

Angus MP Dave Doogan said: “The death of Queen Elizabeth will be a source of great sadness to her family and to many people in Angus. My sincere condolences to all mourning her passing on this sad day. May she rest in peace.”

Angus South MSP Graeme Dey said the passing of the Queen is a moment in history and should be respected as such.

He said: “The nation is truly saddened by the death of Her Majesty The Queen. She was always greeted by enthusiastic crowds during her visits to the city, including her last duty here when she officially opened our Waterfront green space at Slessor Gardens in 2016.

“Flags will fly at half-mast at Dundee City Council buildings as the city joins the nation at this time of mourning. I would also like to pass on the thoughts of Dundee to the Royal Family at this sad time.”
