A police investigation is continuing in Kerikeri where a body was found in a burning car on Tuesday evening.
Emergency services were alerted just after 7pm to the blaze at the far end of Wharau Rd, about 10km east of the town overlooking Wharau Bay and the entrance to Kerikeri Inlet in the Bay of Islands.
This morning the road end was closed with emergency tape and under police guard.
Four police cars could be seen along with a scene-of-crime trailer and a Fire and Emergency investigator's vehicle.
