David and Victoria Beckham axe gardening staff

Footballer David Beckham and fashionista Victoria Beckham have axed 14 staff in a bid to save money.

The cuts include making their Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire mansion's head gardener double as a chauffeur. Six out of seven gardeners at their estate in Bargemon, in the south of France, have also gone.

The couple - who are worth an estimated £115 million - were reportedly advised by financial experts to get rid of a third of the employees who work in their homes in England, Los Angeles, Dubai and France because they were "wasting" money.
