A man who fell from a window - leading to the arrest of Humza Yousaf's brother-in-law and two others - has died in hospital.

The 36-year-old man was seriously injured after falling from a block of flats in Morgan Street, Dundee, on 10 January.

Ramsay El-Nakla, 36, Stephen Stewart, 50, and Victoria McGowan, 41, were arrested in connection with the incident on Monday and subsequently released.

El-Nakla is the brother of first minister Mr Yousaf's wife, Dundee councillor Nadia El-Nakla.

In an update on Thursday, Police Scotland said the man who fell has since died.

"A 36-year-old man was taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment to serious injuries, where he died on Wednesday 17 January."

El-Nakla, Stewart, and McGowan had earlier appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday for a separate matter - as they were accused of being concerned in the supply of heroin, and possessing cocaine and cannabis.

The trio were charged with the alleged drug offences following a report of a break-in in the city's Balmoral Gardens on 11 January.

All three made no plea during their appearance in the dock and were granted bail.
