A man broke lockdown rules to be with his girlfriend. He was in lockdown in Scotland. She was 43 kilometres away on a small island in the Irish Sea. He bought a jet ski for $10,800 and rode it across the sea. He didn't know this was so dangerous. The sea was very rough. He thought it would take 45 minutes to get to the island, but it took over four hours. For most of that time, he thought he was lost. He said: "I didn't have a clue where I was going."

The police arrested the man. He got four weeks in prison for breaking lockdown. He said his adventure was worth it. He risked his life to see his girlfriend. It was the first time he used a jet ski. He said: "It was terrible. It wasn't fun. I followed the GPS, but after half an hour a massive wave wiped it away....I was so scared." He added: "I broke the law, but I did it for love....It could be called a crime of passion." His girlfriend loves him and wants to marry him.
