After 15 years of living in their houseboat on the Scheldt, in the most idyllic setting of the harbour of Antwerp, the owners have been told they have to move.

In Belgium there is a vehicle rental company called Dockx. On the side of every van is emblazened the motto 'Rent your freedom.'

Freedom, it would seem, is temporary. It also appears to be available for rent at a perfectly competitive day rate.
