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