Anti-immigration party Forum voor Democratie has a made a major blunder on a poster for its campaign in next month’s provincial elections by using a photograph of a German cathedral.

The mistake was spotted by DutchNews.nl contributor Molly Quell when she was watching NOS news about the campaign launch on Saturday evening.

The church on the poster is actually a stock photograph from the German town of Limburg an der Lahn.

Local campaign leader Ruud Burlet told the Limburger he could not believe a mistake had been made and that he would have to check it out first.

It is the first time FvD has competed in the provincial elections.
