A man who had been "sleeping rough for some time" has been found dead behind a disused Auckland shop.

Police officers, a pathologist and ESR staff were at the scene of the unexplained death in the suburb of Balmoral.

The man's body was discovered at the rear of a former grocery store shortly before 1pm today.

It was unclear how long the man had been dead but it was unlikely to have been  more than a day, police said.
