London skyscraper accused of melting parts of a car and burning a hole in doormatDevelopers of the unfinished "Walkie-Talkie" building — so called because of its shape — said Tuesday they are investigating the way the building reflects sunlight, after claims that the intense glare melted parts of a luxury car parked nearby and caused a small fire outside a shop.Businessman Martin Lindsay told the BBC that his Jaguar's mirror, panels and badge had all melted from the concentrated heat of sunlight reflected from the building."It was parked for a couple hours in the city ... and it's completely warped," he said. "It's absolutely ruined."A barber shop owner also claimed that the glare burned a hole in his company doormat."We were working and just saw the smoke coming out of the carpet," said Ali Akay. "This is a health and safety issue. They should have looked into this before they built it."
