The memorial to the late AC DC star will stand in Bellies Brae car park and will be unveiled in April (16).

Council leaders received over 80 letters of support for the new statue, four months after AC DC fans succeeded in raising the equivalent of $69,000 (£46,000) needed to complete the funding for its installation.

The statue will be the second of Scott, who was born in Kirriemuir in 1946 but moved with his family to Australia in 1952. An Australian statue honouring the rock star was unveiled in 2008.

The singer died in 1980.
