British man who broke lockdown rules to be with his girlfriend has spoken to newspapers. Dale McLaughlan, 28, really wanted to see his new love Jessica Radcliffe. However, he was in lockdown in Scotland and she was 43 kilometres away on Isle of Man - small island in Irish Sea. Dale was love-struck and decided he had to see his love. He bought jet ski for $10,800 and rode it across sea. He didn't realize how dangerous journey would be. sea was very rough and huge wave washed away his GPS. He thought it would take 45 minutes to get to Isle of Man but it took over four hours. For most of that time, he thought he was lost and had no idea where he was.
Dale was arrested by police and was sentenced to four weeks in prison for breaking lockdown rules. He said his adventure was worth it. He risked his life to see Jessica. It was first time he had ever used jet ski. He described his experience. He said: " first time I stood on jet ski was in that harbour. As soon as I hit open water, I thought, 'Oh my God'. It was terrible. It wasn't fun. I followed GPS, but after half hour a massive wave wiped it away. I didn't have clue where I was going. I thought I was lost at sea. I was so scared." He added: "I broke law, but I did it for love. I should never have done it. It could be called crime of passion." Jessica says she loves Dale and wants to marry him.
