David and Victoria Beckham 'plan to build secret escape tunnel' at their £6m Cotswolds mansion

DAVID and Victoria Beckham are "planning to build an secret escape tunnel" at their £6m Cotswolds mansion after a spate of break-ins at posh pads.

The reported plans come after footballer Dele Alli was robbed at knifepoint at his North London home and Robbie Williams spoke about his burglary fears.

According to documents obtained by the Express, the Beckhams are planning an underground link between their home and garage, as well as a wine cellar.

Planning agents for the property said: "The proposed development includes a new basement cellar constructed beneath the extension to the existing garage outbuilding with a linked walkway.

"The basement cellar beneath is for storage of wine and the proposed use of the outbuilding is solely in association with the main dwelling house, it will improve security for the occupants of the property.

"The proposed [garage] extension adds three new bays to the existing garage outbuilding, increasing the building from four bays to seven."

Meanwhile, the stunning Cotswolds retreat was a Grade II-listed farmhouse that was converted into the sprawling mansion-like building.

Purchased in December 2016 for a reported £6.15million, David and Victoria took their youngest children Harper, 8, Romeo, 17, and Cruz, 15, to the country before lockdown was imposed.

Eldest son Brooklyn, 21, is spending the pandemic with girlfriend Nicola Peltz.

The Beckhams can boast a lengthy property portfolio featuring a London townhouse, Dubai beach property and Miami penthouse.

Home comforts abound inside their Cotswold abode with chandeliers and an enormous roaring fireplace.

The kitchen hosts long tables, gorgeous stone floors and an Aga oven, leading to a vast outdoor eating area to match the one inside.

A tennis court can be found outside with a garden that holds a plunge pool.

Meanwhile, today Victoria revealed the Cotswold mansion had suffered a flood.

Taking to Instagram she told fans that she had some water damage after the bathroom tap was left on.

She wrote: "(Had a) minor flooding incident with an overfilled bath."
