NOBODY comes out well from the alleged plot to kidnap Victoria Beckham: not the police, nor the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) - and certainly not the News of the World.
THE collapse of the Beckham case will almost certainly lead to tougher rules being imposed on the English media, where editors appear to continue to flout the laws enshrining the rights of an accused.
ON A GREY November afternoon last year as a victorious David Beckham left the Old Trafford pitch to raucous applause, his post-match euphoria was cut short when a security guard caught his attention.
THEY melt into any background with a chameleon-like ease, observing, protecting and even sacrificing their own lives to protect their client. And their services are now in more demand than ever before.
FIVE Eastern Europeans under investigation for allegedly plotting to kidnap Victoria Beckham were remanded in custody yesterday after they appeared in court on charges of stealing a £60,000 turban from Sotheby’s auction house.
VICTORIA Beckham sat in the stand at Old Trafford on Saturday, just one of 67,000 faces watching Manchester United’s Premiership match against Southampton. But in the stadium known as the "Theatre of Dreams", she was less concerned with her husband’s performance on the pitch and more with the nightmare of a planned kidnapping.
