The body of a man has been found at Narrow Neck Beach on Auckland's North Shore, in the suburb of Devonport.

The body was found following a report of a drowning shortly after 2pm on Saturday, police say.

Police are working to identify the man and notify next-of-kin.

The death has been referred to the Coroner.

Last month Westlake Girls High School teacher Leslie Gelberger was killed while swimming in Auckland's harbour.

The keen ocean swimmer, originally from Canada, was reported missing after he failed to return from a swim at Narrow Neck Beach.
