BRUSSELS Complaints by householders living on the Clos des Compagnons Batisseurs, a street in Evere near the Belgian capital, prompted Flemish broadcaster VRT to do a search for the longest street name in the country. The Evere householders soon learned it could have been worse, because various other places had even longer street names. The search also crossed the border into The Netherlands, where the Overijsssel town of Gramsbergen came out on top with Burgemeester Baron van Voerst van Lyndenstraat, one letter longer than any Flemish counterpart.
