A TWITTER rumour has put Menstrie residents in a frenzy after it was claimed football hero David Beckham was spotted in the village earlier today.

One user of the social networking site, who goes by the name of Trebor, posted, "Just seen David Beckham" - which was soon met with a flurry of disbelieving comments from fellow Tweeters.

He claimed former Manchester United, Real Madrid and England star Beckham was at the Diageo plant and there was "security everywhere".
