11:31 am on 21 August 2009

The death of a man whose fully-clothed body was found in a Rotorua hot pool is not suspicious, police say.

The man, in his 50s or 60s, was discovered in a private pool at a lakefront property just before 7am on Friday.

St John Ambulance spokesman Charlie Bougher says the man is believed to have been in the pool for up to seven hours.

The matter has been referred to the Coroner.
