TWO daft dinghy riders were rescued after they got into trouble in windy conditions without life jackets. 

A man and a woman were on a small inflatable dinghy in Loch Lomond near the Cameron House Hotel in Alexandria on Monday.

A member of the public raised the alarm after spotting the sailors on the water in dangerous conditions.

Cops alerted the Loch Lomond Rescue boat just after 4.30pm and fined the pair for breaking Covid lockdown rules. 

Rescuers were able to track down the dinghy and told the pair to put on life jackets until they returned to the launch, and the mercy crew returned to Luss, Arygll and Bute.

A spokesman for Loch Lomond Rescue Boat said: "A member of the public had reported seeing two persons in a small rib on the water near to Cameron House and was concerned for their safety due to the windy weather conditions.

"The rescue boat was launched and eventually located the small rib heading back up the River Leven into the Loch.

"The occupants were instructed to put life jackets on and LLRB stayed alongside until they had returned to their point of launch.
