Police will not give any more information about the discovery of the body of a middle-aged man in an Auckland creek yesterday.

The body, whose identity is not yet known, was spotted by a member of the public in a creek in Shepherds Park, Beach Haven, on Auckland's North Shore, about 3pm.

Police had been working on trying to establish the circumstances that have led to his death, a spokesman said.

No details would be released until after a post-mortem examination later today.

A specialist recovery team was needed to recover the body because of the location.

The age of the man was not yet known.
