Mean streets of the IOM a bit safer now.

The IOM police finally cornered the dangerous criminal and put her in jail.

Citizens can sleep a little more soundly in their beds.....

Police kindly invented some more things to charge her with because they were annoyed  sorry spotted some other horribly dangerous driving behaviour and charged her with those offences too. No plea was entered because she was probably speechless.

A woman has been jailed in the Isle of Man for breaking coronavirus rules by stopping to fill up her car with petrol.

Amie Murphy, 36, was said to have failed to go straight home and self isolate following a trip to the mainland UK.

Murphy stopped for fuel in the town of Laxey when her fuel warning light came on in her car shortly after driving off the ferry on September 18.

Douglas Courthouse heard she had completed a landing card and been explained the self isolation rules which she agreed to.She reportedly stopped after her fuel warning light came on. (Getty)

Murphy told a filling station assistant she had "just got off the boat" and he opened the forecourt early for her at around 5am.

She was then reported to police after he told his manager about her trip to the pumps.

The court heard Murphy later became aggressive and swore at officers when confronted by police at her home.

Peter Taylor, defending, said she had not realised her car was low on fuel and did not believe that stopping to fill up was "an unreasonable thing to do".

Murphy admitted failing to comply with a direction under emergency powers regulations and resisting arrest and was jailed for four weeks.

Magistrates said the rules had been explained to her and that the island was doing its "very best to keep COVID-19 out"

She is the fifth person to be jailed over social distancing breaches on the Isle of Man.

No pleas were entered to two charges of driving offences and her next appearance at Douglas Courthouse will be on October 15.

I always wondered this about this on the mainland with regard to food.

The natural thing to do if you are told to self isolate for 2 weeks would be to immediately hit the supermarket and buy two weeks worth of food.

Presumably that could/would land you a £10k fine if discovered.

Yet the alternative could be not eating for a fortnight.

The police would obviously be happy to throw away the key..  but you do wonder how well these things are being thought through and implemented.

Regarding this Isle of Man case..  well,   thank god a dangerous criminal has been taken off the streets 9_9

You should be offered support. Apparently Oldham council do. I'd have to see it to believe it.

There was an army of volunteers begging to help earlier in the year.

Apparently the island is famed for its homophobia.

In order to visit, the choices are ferry or plane (there is a small airport in the capital).  So the only way that anyone can get on the island is by entering Douglas.

The island has gone into a state of paranoia over the virus. Most Manx residents quite happy with their splendid isolation as long as the boat comes in with supplies for Tesco and M&S. They are cocooned and life is normal with everything open and no restrictions to everyday life - except the no contact if you've been off the island.

They have boxed themselves in, at some point they are going to have to open the borders and allow visitors. Else no TT for a second year and the 80,000 alcoholics clinging to a rock will never be more true.

I normally visit, not able to.

I’d much rather the U.K. had done similar with strict border controls, rather than just let it in then “quarantine” everyone, destroying millions of lives and livelihoods.

 

Of all the countries that could have done with a longer period to get ready we are/were pretty much top of the list.

PPE, death rate (atrocious, worst in the world at the time), can't even count tests. Dubious trials as well using toxic levels of treatments supposedly used successfully elsewhere.  

Dexamathasone one bright point but even that is probably a sub-optimal drug of its type for treatment.

There was always the option of letting it in, saving those we could, mourning the dead and carrying on and NOT destroying millions of lives and livelihoods. It would be pretty much over by now and the UK would have a decent level of herd immunity plus a blip in the death stats for one year. How many extra dead would there have been, mostly very old - 100,000? 150,000? It's a piffling amount in 65-70 million when you consider several times that number die every year.
