Gordon Ramsay and son Jack rip up the coast in a speedboat after angering neighbours by travelling to second home – The Sun

GORDON Ramsay and his son Jack ripped up the coast in a speedboat after angering neighbours by travelling to his second home.

Gordon, 53, took to the seas after being hounded with complaints over a string of long-distance bike rides in Cornwall.

Today the TV chef's mop of blond hair was easy to spot as he whizzed along the coast near Pladstow.

He seemed to be enjoying the sea breeze on his face when he took the helm of the flashy boat, as son Jack, 20, covered his eyes with shades.

The pair ensured their safety by wearing life jackets on their day out at the seaside, whilst a third passenger sported a black cap.

It comes after the wealthy star found himself in hot water with Cornwall locals as he broke government rules.

Gordon, who has been forced to take out bumper loans to secure future of restaurant empire, had angered locals by shacking up in his £4million second home after the government announced strict rules to stem the spread of Covid-19.

And he risked enraging his neighbours again after going for a series of bike rides along the Cornish coast.

The chef posted videos showing the breathtaking views near his family's £4million holiday home, as well as a snap of his bicycle during the outing.

He later took a swipe at his neighbours during a live Instagram video by offering them a burger to ‘put a smile on their face’.

The Sun revealed today Gordon took out loans to secure the future of his restaurants during the coronavirus crisis.

According to documents filed at Companies House this month the star — worth around £185million — registered charges with Barclays bank against 16 firms.

A source said: "Gordon is doing what he can to keep his businesses afloat and people in jobs.

"He has personally put several million into the company throughout the crisis to support the business and there are more than 400 staff still on payroll. Clearly like the rest of the hospitality business, he has no idea of when he might be allowed to open and still has costs to cover."

Gordon was also blasted for deciding to lay off staff rather than use the Government’s furlough scheme during the Covid-19 crisis.

Some of the 500 axed staff blasted Gordon Ramsay Restaurants on social media for ending their contracts out of the blue.

Ramsay had called staff to a meeting where they were told their contracts were being cancelled.

Tearful staff had no idea their jobs were at risk and have now been placed on gardening leave for the duration of their notice period.
