THE Walkie Talkie skyscraper at 20 Fenchurch Street in central London is melting cars. Martin Lindsay sis the rays melted the panels, wing mirror and badge on his Jaguar XJ saloon with warped panels along one side. He said: They’re going to have to think of something. I’m gutted. How can they let this continue?” Agreed. Once upon a time, Jaguar was the mark of solidity and style;’ now it’s made form plastic and looks like painted Tupperware on wheels.

As a result of the melting Jag, people hzae been pictured looking up at the building and shielding their eyes, lest they too melt (like their hands).
