A BRITISH fugitive wanted in connection with the disappearance of Lisa Brown has been arrested at a UK airport.
Simon Corner, 35, was cuffed at London Heathrow airport this morning after a European Arrest Warrant was issued last month.
It comes after the family of Lisa launched a £100,000 reward for information on Corner’s whereabouts at a press conference in Algeciras in March.
Lisa, from Scotland, vanished aged 32 in November 2015 from her home in Guadiaro near Gibraltar and is presumed dead by her family and Spanish police.
Her sister Helen said: “We are as happy as we can be. We expect extradition to run its course now. We don’t think there’s any chance he will be let out again by the Spanish courts before his trial.”
He now faces extradition to Spain to face trial.
Corner remains under investigation on suspicion of Lisa’s homicide – along with six other Brits suspected of obstruction of justice.
