Beckham's Expensive Security System

Soccer superstar DAVID BECKHAM has spent a staggering $247,000 (GBP130,000) on a sophisticated home security system - because he fears a repeat of last July (18JUL04) when an arsonist broke into his English mansion.

The REAL MADRID hunk has installed infra-red sensors at his and wife VICTORIA's $9.5 million (GBP5 million) home in Hertfordshire after intruder, JOHN HENNIGAN was jailed for seven months for roaming around their 25-acre (10.11 hectares) estate with a can of petrol.

A source says, "David and Victoria were sick with worry.

"They had already spent hundreds of thousands on security and couldn't believe it had fallen short of what they had hoped.

"They made a decision there and then to make sure it could never happen again."
