"They checked it out and recognised the items as ones which had either been given to David and Victoria or bought by them and placed in their home. When they checked out the house, they discovered items matching those that were being offered for sale were missing and called in the police.” The seller claimed to be a relative of a member of staff at David’s soccer academy who had been forced to sell the items because of financial problems. Officers arrested housekeepers Eric and June Emmet on suspicion of theft before releasing them on police bail. David, 33, and Victoria, 34 – who live in Los Angeles but have flown back to the UK to deal with the incident – had employed the couple for more than 10 years.

A friend of the Beckhams said: “David and Victoria are hugely traumatised. To think they have been betrayed by people they trusted is even more upsetting.” June, 56, insists she and her 55-year-old husband are innocent. She said: “I totally deny the allegations. This has all come as a bolt from the blue. The whole thing has taken us by surprise.”
