The Beckhams beef up security at Cotswolds home with barbed wire and patrol dog

David and Victoria Beckham have been beefing up security at their £6 million Cotswolds mansion following two attempted break-ins earlier this year.

The famous family often spend weekends and downtime at the country retreat, which boasts nine bedrooms, and want to make sure the home is protected against any further burglary attempts.

They recently had barbed wire installed around the perimeter of the property and also reportedly had better motion and lighting sensors fitted.

On top of paying for more security patrols at the mansion, they’ve also now got a new German Shepherd guard dog named Logan.

On Christmas Day, Romeo shared a picture with the canine as he wished his 1.8 million Instagram followers happy Christmas.

“The Beckhams don’t want to risk a third burglary attempt," a source told The Sun.


"They had a team of security experts come in to assess the property and they’re taking no chances. The place is like Fort Knox now.”

On October 19, the home was targeted by masked raiders, but they were disturbed by security and their neighbours.

David and Victoria were travelling to Australia with children Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven, at the time.

A month later, on November 14, a ­second break-in bid took place when the family, who also have a West London base, were not at home.
