Musicians rent a boat to beat quarantine from France in minutes


A group of musicians broke quarantine rules in France with just 10 minutes to spare – after charting a fishing boat to bring them back to the UK.After a five-hour Channel crossing, eight members of the Scotland-based Dunedin Consort arrived at Hayling Island in Hampshire at 3:50 a.m.

They took the last-minute shot after a performance at Lessay Abbey in Normandy on Friday night.

It was the Baroque ensemble’s first concert since the lockout began in March.

They were among thousands of Britons trying to return home before the 14-day quarantine requirement went into effect at 4 a.m.
