London Skyscraper “Walkie-Talkie” Melts Part Of A Jaguar
Imagine owning a jaguar... now imagine that same jaguar getting melted like ants under a magnifying glass. That's what happened to one car in London due to the Walkie-Talkie skyscraper.
The 37-storey skyscraper has been nicknamed the "Walkie Talkie" because of its shape. It looks like a big walkie talkie in the sky. Also the building is still under construction. However they may need to rethink their blueprints due to the fact it has the ability to melt the ground below.
In a joint statement, developers said:
"We are aware of concerns regarding the light reflecting from 20 Fenchurch Street and are looking into the matter. As a precautionary measure, the City of London has agreed to suspend three parking bays in the area which may be affected while we investigate the situation further."
So what exactly happened to the car?
According to the BBC, the car was owned by a man named Martin Lindsay. Lindsay parked the car while running errands and when he returned about two hours later, he found parts of his car melted. It appears that the wing mirror and badge were parts that melted. The developers have apologized and paid for repairs. Luckily Lindsay was happy and just wanted the developers to look into the issue itself.
