This is the second break-in incident, with the first happening in October while the family were on in Sydney, Australia. The Beckham family split their time between their homes in West London, the Cotswolds and LA, and they also own a property in Miami. Their country retreat in the Cotswolds is where the family throw many parties, including a recent birthday celebration for Gordon Ramsay's wife Tana. The families – who are close friends – were pictured together during the summer in the Grade II-listed barns at the property. It also boasts nine bedrooms, and stunning period features, as well as a wood fire oven. Last Christmas, the Beckhams also spent Christmas there.
