SIMON Corner hurled mobile phones into Copenhagen harbour before surrendering to Danish police, it has been revealed.

DISCARDED: Corner hurled phones into sea

A witness saw Corner, who was wanted for questioning over the disappearance of ex-girlfriend Lisa Brown, discard the phones before going into a police station.

Corner, 33, is then believed to have asked to be extradited to Spain, where a European Arrest Warrant had been issued for him.

The Livepudlian appeared before a San Roque court on Friday to face questioning over mother-of-one Lisa’s disappearance.

Lisa, 32, went missing on November 4 from her home in Guadiaro with Corner going on the run shortly afterwards.

Spanish police are treating the case as homicide.

Soren Harbo, a prosecutor with Copenhagen police’s homicide department, said: “He was seen throwing a couple of mobile phones into the harbour by an eyewitness.

“He handed himself in to police. He asked to be extradited to Spain as soon as possible.

“Our divers found three or four phones at the harbour. They have all been given to the Spanish police.

“It is their case now and it’s up to them to decide what he is charged with.”

Meanwhile, a second Briton who appeared at San Roque court in connection with the case has been identified only as J.W.

The man is believed to be 30 years old and lives in La Linea.

The court made him surrender his passport and he will be required to appear before the court twice a month.

Reports suggest he had worked with Corner on his boat in Alcaidesa a couple of months before Lisa’s disappearance.

A third man is also believed to have been arrested in connection with the case two weeks ago.
