Body recovered from harbour

Auckland City

Auckland City Police recovered a man's body from Waitemata Harbour near Prince's Wharf at about 11.30am and are making inquiries to locate the man's next of kin.

Officers say Police launch Deodar retrieved the body after he was seen floating near the ferry terminal side of the wharf. A post-mortem examination will be carried out tomorrow but initial assessments by attending officers have not given them any reason to assume the death is suspicious.

It's not known how he came to be in the water but it appears he had not been there for any great length of time.
