Police are treating the death of a person found at Auckland Domain this morning as unexplained.
Officers completed a scene examination after being called to the domain shortly after 10am to investigate a sudden death.
A person at the scene said the site of the incident was near the domain's Band Rotunda, northwest of the Auckland War Memorial Museum. They said police appeared to remove a wallet from the body, which looked to be between the roots of a large tree.
A post mortem examination was due to be carried out tomorrow. Formal identification procedures were still to be completed, including contacting the person's next of kin.
