Jet ski Romeo banned from Isle of Man after ill-advised attempt to see girlfriend

Jet ski Romeo Dale McLaughlan can’t catch a break.

The lovesick 28-year-old Scotsman made headlines for his madcap dash across the Irish Sea to see his new girlfriend, Jessica Radcliffe, 30, in the Isle of Man.

McLaughlan — who doesn’t know how to swim — spent four and a half hours on his water scooter as he made the 25-mile voyage, which ended with him thrown in jail for breaking lockdown rules by entering the island without permission.

He was released early in time for Christmas but was still unable to meet his gal pal for the holiday due to the same coronavirus restrictions that landed him in the slammer in the first place.

And now, McLaughlan has been slapped with a no-entry certificate that bars him from entering the Isle of Man again, even though the roofer had planned to return there Jan. 11 for work, the Sun reported.

The couple met in September, when McLaughlan was legally working on the island, before being separated by the strict lockdown rules.

His brush with the law apparently didn’t faze Radcliffe, who has said she’d marry him if he popped the question.

“Anyone who is prepared to cross an ocean to see you has got to be serious,” she told the Daily Mail.
