Mayor of Brussels' underpants stolen

A pair of underpants belonging to the Mayor of Brussels has been stolen from a museum showcasing underwear belonging to Belgian politicians and artists.

Until recently one of the key exhibits at the Brussels Underpants Museum was a pair of briefs donated and signed by the Mayor of Brussels, Yvan Mayeur.

Landlord Jan Bucquoy told the website "We only noticed the theft last Sunday. The underpants were exhibited in the pub. It's a lot easier to steal the pants there than in the museum on the first floor".

Mr Bucquoy now intends to ask Mr Mayeur for a replacement pair.
