Police were called after 10.30am with reports of a person floating in the water.

A spokeswoman said police had since located a man deceased in the water.

“Enquiries are under way to establish the circumstances of the man’s death.”

A Transdev spokeswoman confirmed police had been called to an incident on the train line about 11am.

Trains were briefly halted between Porirua and Paremata have but have since resumed after the body was recovered, a police spokesperson said.

In September this year, police also responded to reports of a body found on a beach in central Porirua.
