VICTORIA and David Beckham have increased their security after reportedly receiving a string of threats to their family's safety.
The former Spice Girl and her soccer ace husband are said to have hired extra bodyguards following warnings from police about possible kidnappers targeting high profile children.
David Beckham was recently photographed picking his sons up from school in Los Angeles with a convoy of two security vehicles behind his Rolls Royce car.
And a source tells British newspaper the Daily Star that the security hike is in response to "chilling new warnings".
The couple has three children - Brooklyn, nine, Romeo, six, and Cruz, three. The family was previously at the centre of an alleged kidnap plot in 2002.
