Developers for this unfinished 37-story skyscraper in central London say they are investigating the way the building reflects bright sunlight – after claims that the intense glare melted parts of a car parked nearby. The companies behind the skyscraper, nicknamed the 'Walkie-Talkie' because of its curved shape, are responding to complaints from the owner of a Jaguar who said the mirror, panels and the Jaguar badge had all melted from the concentrated heat of sunlight reflected from the building. Locals also say the building's heat also burned a hole in the welcome mat of a barber shop across the street.
