Posh's dad speaks on Becks' return

VICTORIA Beckham's father has spoken out over mounting speculation that the celebrity family are to permanently return to their Sawbridgeworth home this summer.

The couple have filled front and back pages again after England captain and Real Madrid star David Beckham attacked the Spanish paparazzi, saying his eldest son, Brooklyn, had been left distressed when being chased by a group of photographers.

Some reports claimed the family have now put their two-year-old son Romeo's name down at Heath Mount private school, Watton-at-Stone, near Ware.

However Tony Adams, father of Victoria - the former Posh Spice - said that while the family would eventually return to their home in Sawbridgeworth, the recent rumours were rubbish.

He said: "They definitely will be coming back to the town in the future but there is no truth in rumours that have appeared in papers recently. When they do return depends on football matters.

"All the reports about schools and Heath Mount is a load of rubbish.

"And when he can, when he's in England, Brooklyn goes to St Joseph's-in-the-Park (Hertingfordbury) not Heath Mount."

Staff at Heath Mount had previously denied rumours linking the school with the family.

Mr Adams said the whole family had returned to this country for the England internationals against Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan. David Beckham last week revealed his thoughts over the Spanish paparazzi harassing his son Brooklyn.

He said: "This is a six-year-old little boy. I'm at the point where I don't know what to do because it's my children now and that's different.

"Victoria and I have always accepted that we're in the limelight and people are going to take pictures of us.

"But when it comes to our children being out on their own, in their school, for me, it's crossing the line."

National newspaper reports have linked him with a return to this country, including a possible switch to Tottenham.
