A POST mortem is being carried out on a body found near a Tesco petrol station.
The badly-decomposed body was found near the North Harbour store by a construction worker at the new McDonald’s under construction nearby, off Southampton Road.
He found it after following some rabbits that were running in the grass at around 11am yesterday.
Officers taped off the scene and put up a tent around the body.
Now police have confirmed a post mortem was due to start today at 2pm.
