Golf secret behind Douglases' bulletproof windows 

Hollywood couple Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas bought bullet-proof windows for their new Welsh mansion - to protect themselves from flying golf balls.

The glamorous pair shocked neighbours in Mumbles, Swansea, when they bought the expensive, high-security glass for their $3.6m (3m) home earlier this year.

However it turns out the house is near to a golf course and the acting couple were concerned lost balls could enter the house and hurt their young children Dylan and Carys.

A member of the golf club says: "If you slice your shot, your ball with fly towards their house so the windows are there as a safety measure."
