On his Facebook page Rob Heirbaut wrote: "I was locked in a toilet in the Justius Lipsius Building, just before the news".
“Thanks to Joost the cameraman’s screwdriver I was able to crawl out through the vent at the bottom of the door. Apparently it happens quite often here”, Rob Heirbaut wrote.
But all’s well that ends well and an unruffled Rob was able to bring Flemings up to speed on the summit.
