Police are investigating after a person’s body was found on an east Auckland beach this morning, October 10.

A police spokesperson says officers were notified at 7.22am by a member of the public about a body on the sand near Green Bay Reserve in Beachlands.

“An investigation into the circumstances of the death is under way and at this stage it is being treated as unexplained.

“A scene examination is under way and we ask that people avoid the area while this is ongoing.

“Further information will be provided when we are in a position to do so.”

A Times staff member who lives in Beachlands says she heard the local emergency siren activated at the Beachlands fire station at about 7.35am.

While driving along Whitford-Maraetai Road toward Howick at about 7.45am she was passed by five police cars and two St John Ambulance vehicles heading for Beachlands.
