The Danish man sentenced to life in jail for the murder of journalist Kim Wall aboard his homemade submarine was surrounded by police on Tuesday after a failed prison escape bid, police said.

"Peter Madsen has tried to escape," a Copenhagen police official told AFP, adding that "a police action is still ongoing".

It quoted witnesses who said he managed to drive away in a white van before police stopped him.

In a documentary that aired in September, he confessed for the first time to the killing, after having insisted during the trial that her death was an accident.
