Police have named a man found dead in Westport at the weekend. He was Mark Travis Currie, 38.

Mr Currie had moved from Nelson to the West Coast five weeks ago.

Police say a 40-year old woman who had been living with him is co-operating with them and has not been arrested.

They would like to hear from anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity or disturbances in Brougham St, Westport, on Saturday night or Sunday morning.

A post-mortem is expected to take place in Christchurch on Wednesday.
