Photo of the week: Step it up
This landmark statue in Flemish Brabant has been restored to its former glory after it was seriously damaged by vandals in the summer
Stairway to nowhere
The 11m high, 20m long staircase was installed in 2013 in Tielt-Winge, near Leuven, and is well-known among the TV viewing public in Flanders for its appearance in the series Callboys. It sits on one of the highest points in the area and on clear days offers a stunning view of the surrounding landscape, from Vilvoorde in the west to Hasselt in the east.
In July, five people were arrested on suspicion of causing damage to the tower, which caused it to close to the public for several months. The cost of the repairs, totalling approximately €100,000, will be recovered from those found responsible.
