V&A Dundee has closed to new visitors after ferocious Storm Ali wind swept people off their feet outside.
Staff at the venue, which opened over the weekend, say “exceptionally high winds” at the entrance mean they are preventing new access this afternoon.
The Courier witnessed members of the public struggling to stay upright as wind whipped in from the River Tay. One man fell to the ground and had to be helped up.
Anyone already in the museum is being invited to stay inside until normal closing time at 5pm if they wish. It is hoped the conditions will have improved by then.
Gusts of over 102mph have been recorded on the Tay Road Bridge as Storm Ali whips through Tayside and Fife.
