The bronze statue of Sir Robert Watson-Watt, pioneer of radar, took pride of place in St Ninian’s Square, as it was lowered on to it’s newly completed plinth.

The statue, which was made possible thanks to the hard work and fund-raising of the Watson-Watt Society, was watched by a small crowd as workmen made sure that the statue was firmly in place.

The work began at around 11 a.m. today (Thursday, May 15), and took around 45 minutes to finish installing the bronze figure.

An official unveiling, which will see a plaque added to the plinth, will take place at a later date
