Well, this may not be going as expected.
A man made headlines for breaking the coronavirus restrictions and traveling on a jet ski across the Irish Sea to visit his girlfriend, but his story may not have a romantic ending. In fact, his move may have been successful, so he could not return to the Isle of Man.
Southwest News Agency reported that Dale McLaughlan from Scotland met his girlfriend Jessica Radcliffe after obtaining a tax exemption certificate while working on the Isle of Man in September. He is reportedly working in the area to complete a construction project that started before the pandemic broke out and caused the country to restrict its borders to non-residents.
In mid-December, McLaren was arrested for violating coronavirus restrictions and sentenced to four weeks in prison. A romantic journey by motorboat from Whithorn Island to Isle of Man in Scotland. According to reports, due to the bad weather, the trip took McLaughlan away for about four and a half hours. McLaughlan has never driven a jet ski before.
According to reports, McLaren was released from prison early and sent back to Scotland.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Isle of Man has been open to non-residents since March. During McLaughlan’s stunt performance, the island had only four active coronavirus cases.
Howard Quayle, Chief Minister of the Isle of Man, called McLaren’s move “a very incredibly dangerous move, and at some point of the year, this move may be quite different.”

SWNS reported, however, that McLaren originally planned to return to work on the Isle of Man in January. But after his arrest, he was not granted the necessary certificates to allow him to return. For Radcliffe, this may be bad news. Radcliffe had previously told the news media that after the motorboat stunt, if McLaren asked her to marry him, she would say yes.
