Belgian Flemish separatists make gains in local elections


A party that wants to split up Belgium appears to have made widespread gains in local elections.

With most of the ballots counted, the Flemish Nationalist Party has won more than 36% of the vote.

The most high profile win came from the party's leader, Bart de Wever, who won the mayoral election in Antwerp.
