A masked burglar has broken into the Beckham family home in West London and made off with thousands of pounds’ worth of valuables.

The thief forced their way into a spare upstairs bedroom at the £40m mansion in Holland Park and ransacked the place while David, Victoria and 10-year-old daughter Harper relaxed downstairs completely unawares. 

The break-in, on February 28, was not discovered until 17-year-old Cruz returned home from a night out and stumbled upon the upturned bedroom and spotted broken glass from a window on the floor.

David, 46, reportedly called 999 and set about searching the mansion for the burglar with Cruz, while Harper remained with Victoria, 47, and waited for the police.

A source close to the family told The Sun: ‘Sadly the Beckhams were the victims of some fairly professional thieves who have been operating in the area.

‘Fortunately the criminals only made it as far as one bedroom before they ran off.’

The family are said to have been ‘shaken up’ by the burglary, but no one was hurt.

The thief made off with thousands in designer clothes, accessories and electric goods stored in the room – but did not hang around for more. 

Two other properties were also targeted, including a neighbouring house which thieves found was empty once inside, and another home on the same street into which burglars were unable to force entry. 

The raid comes just weeks after Posh and Becks won planning permission to overhaul their Holland Park mansion, parts of which had been sealed off as it had began to crumble.

Pictures of the propertly exclusively obtained by MailOnline show that the Grade II-listed property is held up by supports before work gets underway.

The couple were granted permission by Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to repair their historic rear terrace and stairs, which had become too dangerous to use.

Beckham’s design and access statement revealed their plans to ‘reinstate the terrace, which is considered structurally unsound, on a like for like basis.’

The statement also says the family no longer use the terrace which has structural damage is due to age, water ingress, cracking and spalling due to frost.

Props and timber bearers have been installed to provide temporary support to prevent collapse and any loss of the buildings original features – including damage to the original cast iron railings. 

The statement reads: ‘A structural engineer has inspected the terrace and recommended repairs and renewal works on a like for like basis.’

From photos attached to the application, the roof terrace, which is crumbling in parts, is being supported by metal poles to stop it from collapsing.

The project is being overseen by Soho House architect Michael Ergatoudis, who was also in charge of the previous renovations at the home and their Cotswolds retreat.
