Beano publisher DC Thomson has requested that a road in a Scottish city be named after some of its iconic characters.

The Scottish firm has asked Dundee City Council to honour the Bash Street Kids by naming an untitled road adjacent to 142/144 West Marketgait after them.

DC Thomson lodged the request to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the influential British comic anthology.

A Dundee council spokesman said: "Dundee City Council has received a request from DC Thomson to allocate the name Bash Street to the street adjacent to 142/144 West Marketgait, which currently has no name.

"This is to tie-in with the proposed new build and to celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Beano in 2013 in the comic's hometown. There is a proposal for a children's soft play area within the former works buildings off West Marketgait."

The proposal is currently under discussion and a decision is due to be made on November 16.
