Jet skier leaves Island after release from prison

McLaughlan boards Ben-my-Chree

Dale McLaughlan who arrived on the Isle of Man illegally by jet ski earlier this month has been released from prison.

He left the Island this morning.

Mr McLaughlan was pictured smiling as he boarded the Ben-my-Chree earlier after release from Jurby Prison.

The 28-year-old made a four and a half hour trip from the Isle of Whithorn on 11 December to see his girlfriend in breach of border rules.

After arriving in Ramsey he walked 15 miles to Douglas.

He was jailed for four weeks but has been released after serving less than half his sentence.
