THE girlfriend of a jetski Romeo who crossed the Irish Sea to visit her in lockdown has been charged with attacking another woman.
Jessica Radcliffe is accused of causing actual bodily harm, criminal damage and breaching lockdown rules.
The mum-of-two appeared in the dock via video link, with the court hearing she and a pal allegedly drove to the home of a woman they were feuding with.
The Daily Record reports the 30-year-old and Leanna Bradley, 33, forced their way into the Isle of Man house as the alleged victim called 999.
Prosecutor Chrissie Hunt told the court the pair left their car in the street before grabbing the woman's iPhone and smashing it.
She alleges they kicked and punched the victim, as she called for her housemate to protect her kids upstairs.
The court was told the woman was left with forehead burns, and bruises to her head, arms and back.
Both of the women, also both described as unemployed, accused of the attack were bailed.
It comes after lovesick Dale McLaughlan, 28, made the treacherous 4.5-hour trip from Irvine, Scotland to the Isle of Man in December to see Radcliffe.
The dad was jailed for breaking coronavirus rules but released three days early in time for Christmas.
Dale was slapped with a no entry certificate that bars him from entering the Isle of Man again.
He had never driven a jet ski before and is unable to swim but still carried out the trip desperate to see his beau.
The couple met in September, when he was legally working on the island before being separated by lockdown rules.
The roofer came up with the plan after his latest work permit was rejected, forcing him to think of another way to see his lover.
After his grand gesture, Radcliffe revealed she would tie the knot with Dale if he proposes, saying: “I’ve had messages from all over the world.
“People from Italy have sent pictures of jet skis saying, ‘This is for your boyfriend, showing our support.’
“People from Ireland have said, ‘What he did is heroic. You should marry that man.'
“If he asks me, I’ll say yes. It’s definitely a story to tell our grandkids.”
