The body of a dead man has been found in Porirua Harbour.

Police were called after 10:30am on Wednesday after people reported what they thought was a person floating in the harbour, which is about 20km north of Wellington.

"We have since located a man deceased in the water. Enquiries are under way to establish the circumstances of the man's death," a police spokesperson told Newshub.

Trains between Porirua and Paremata have been put on hold while police make these enquiries, a Transdev spokeswoman told Stuff.
