LONDON (NBC/EBU) - A new London skyscraper that's nicknamed the "Walkie-Talkie" is being blamed for reflecting so much light it melted parts of a car parked nearby.
Martin Lindsay parked his Jaguar near the building last Thursday afternoon. When he returned two hours later, he found parts of the car had melted.
"Someone was taking a photograph of my car, and I thought it was strange -- as I walked up to it,” said Lindsay. “I said, ‘What are you doing?’ And they said, ‘Have you seen what's happened to your car?’ So I said, ‘Oh, crikey. That's unbelievable. How's that happened?’ She said, ‘I think it's something to do with the reflection of the building.’"
The building's developer has apologized and has offered to pay for repairs.
The 37-story building is nicknamed the Walkie-Talkie because of its shape. It's still under construction.
