You do hope the young lady got paid for that, but knowing the Mail they probably stole it off social media and the rest of the story from elsewhere.  What's fascinating to observe with this story is just how little original reporting there has been (even for his own local paper in Irvine).  Only the New York Times seemed to make any effort, which highlights how useless the British media are.

Incidentally I think he is wearing gloves in those photos, but the are light-coloured.

Anyone else fail to recognise exactly where that picture was taken which is supposed to be when he arrived ? ... I don't recall a backdrop like that anywhere near Ramsey.

Well the story did make an appearance in that bastion of unbiased and fair journalism that is the Guardian...

If you visited more often then your recollection would be better.

They did sod all extra reporting as well (though they did at least credit the BBC).  It was actually one of their most popular website stories yesterday, though they dropped it off the front page fairly quickly.

It's not stealing if she puts up photos on a publically accessed social media platform though is it? Plus, she's showing cleavage....big fucken deal and she's probably a right munter when you strip away the make-up, not that she's owt to look at with make-up on...and lastly, she's probably got the IQ of an earthworm..so all in all, fuck all.

That's a pretty brutal comment about someone who you don't know and who has just found herself in the middle of a media storm without asking for any of it.

Interesting pieces from the news item.

He is reported to have had only 10 minutes worth of fuel left. I'm amazed he had that much.

The other,

"Speaking at her home in Irvine last night, McLaughlan's mother Allison told the Daily Record: 'I didn't even know about the jet ski. I just don't know why he did it – he could have killed himself.'

Miss McLaughlan added: 'He'll be missing his kids over Christmas.'"
