A man rode a jet ski from the mainland to the Isle of Man for more than four hours. He wanted to visit his girlfriend – and is now in jail for several weeks for ignoring the corona rules.
For his adventurous journey by jet ski to the British Isle of Man, a man is now serving a prison sentence of several weeks. The 28-year-old was detained for four weeks for violating corona rules, the BBC reported.
The man had come to the island on a watercraft from Scotland last weekend to visit his girlfriend. It had taken him about four and a half hours for his 25 mile ride. However, under current Corona rules, access to the island is only allowed in exceptional cases – this visit was not one of them.
According to the report, the unauthorized visitor had met his girlfriend in September while working as a roofer on the island for several weeks. He told the court that his requests to re-enter had been denied. The Isle of Man lies in the sea between Northern Ireland and England and has a population of about 84,000.
