Around 5.20 pm a report was received for a explosive device that had been found in Dikkebusstraat in Dranouter. Upon arrival, it turned out to be a shell at the festival campsite.
“There was a risk of explosion” (police)
A perimeter was immediately demarcated and the DOVO demining service was called in. “Obuses in the Westhoek, that is nothing new in itself, but this one still had a head which means that there was still a real danger of explosion,” said police spokesman Glenn Verdru. “That’s why we didn’t take any risks.”
The mine clearance service came to pick up the explosive device.
The Festival Dranouter started last night. There were a lot of people on the opening night.
