13 Liverpool fans arrived safely in Paris after crossing the English Channel by dinghy.
After some of the group had their flight cancelled, the supporters gathered in Jersey where mega-fan Paddy O’Toole is based.
“We felt sorry for the young lads so we had to do something,” he told The Liverpool Echo.

The group decided to commission a Redbay Stormforce 950 – a motor-powered dinghy – to speed across the waves.
In a video of the crossing, one passenger can be heard shouting: “We must be off our f*******g heads”.
“We saw a few dolphins on the way and got the train to Rennes and then to Paris. A few more of are mates from Liverpool who live in Jersey heard we were going and joined on. We haven’t got a ticket between us,” said Paddy.
