Police treating death of woman whose body was discovered in a Wellington Harbour lagoon as 'unexplained'

A woman's body has been found in Wellington Harbour this morning.

Police confirmed the body has been found in Whairepo Lagoon, near Frank Kitts Park.

Police are treating the woman's death as "unexplained".

A police spokesperson said they were called to the lagoon at 10:55am and enquires into the circumstances of the woman's death are under way.

A local Kaumatua performed a blessing of the Whairepo Lagoon scene at 4pm and police are likely to stand-down from that area shortly.
