Prison key lost in Dendermonde Goal

A key has vanished at Dendermonde Gaol (East Flanders). That's according to a report in Gazet van Antwerpen.

The key gives access to the outer part of the prison site. It is not clear whether the key has been stolen or just lost. In the meantime, all locks have been changed as a precaution measure.

Dendermonde Prison has a very old infrastructure. Seven years ago, the prison made the headlines when no fewer than 28 inmates managed to escape by climbing over a prison wall.
