The Chelsea defender revealed his dismay when posting the image on to Instagram

James posted the shocking damage to his car on Instagram, as he shared his dismay with followers.    

He captioned the picture: ‘Another rewarding experience with the Felix Project today serving meals to the younger generation.

‘Hopefully we spread some joy ahead of a challenging Christmas period.

‘Unfortunately, I was met with huge disappointment when returning to my car.

‘During the event, someone felt the need to break in and steal gifts that I was due to go and donate later in the day. What goes around comes around.’

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a bright start to the season, earning his first England caps

As well as his admirable work off the pitch, the full-back has been impressive on it too having emerged as a regular starter under Frank Lampard this term.

James has started all but two of the Blues’ Premier League encounters this term as the west London side look to put together a title challenge.

In addition his form has landed him a first England cap under Gareth Southgate, earning two more since as he looks to book a place at next summer’s European Championship.
