Speeding jet-skiers fined by court

Clacton and Frinton Gazette: Essex Police Marine Division (pictured) snared speeding jet-skiers Essex Police Marine Division (pictured) snared speeding jet-skiers

ROGUE jet-skiers have been hit with heavy fines after being caught speeding off the coast at St Osyth.

Freddie Saye, from Romford, Sean Prescott, from South Ockenden, and Robert Watson, from Witham, were caught by Essex Police’s Marine Division last year.

Saye admitted breaking the eight-knot speed limit at Colchester Magistrates' Court, and driving without due care and attention.

He was fined £300, with costs of £326.

The case against Prescott and Watson was proved in their absence.

They were each fined £1,200 and ordered to pay costs of £366.

Tendring Council environment boss Nick Turner said: “We will always prosecute through the courts where we have the evidence to do so and to deter people from spoiling the safe enjoyment of others.”

Excellent. I know a child who was killed by one of these going to fast in an rea they should not have been in.

Also confiscate the machine.

Jack, I am with you. You just have to watch these chavs in the summer tearing up and down the coastline without any regard for anyone else on the water. The sooner St Osyth PC and TDC do something about the launching at Point Clear the better. The government should introduce licensing to all those who use the water and also licensing of any launch facility which can be withdrawn (and therefore launching banned) if their clientelle is disreputable.

50000000, sums you up with your spelling. Did I mention swimming out too far or lilos ? No ! I've witnessed the Chavs tearing through fleets of kids sailing causing their rescue boats to then have to try and be in umpteen places at once because the wakes have caused them to capsize. Yes the sailing clubs have rescue boats unlike the Chavs who think its great to take small kids out on their jet skis without a buoyancy aid between them and then expect the RNLI to come out and rescue them when they are in trouble.
