The police have released the name of the man who died in what they say appears to have been a dispute between neighbours in Tolaga Bay, north of Gisborne.

He was 40-year-old local man Mark Anthony Paaka.

A 51-year-old man has been charged with assault in relation to the incident, although the police say more serious charges are possible as they continue their investigation.

He will appear in the Gisborne District Court on Friday.
