Strolling down London streets and getting a whiff of melted plastic might soon become somewhat common, after a skyscraper (the 'Walkie Talkie' building at at 20 Fenchurch Street) reportedly viciously attacked and melted a car in broad daylight. Yes, you read that right (okay, so maybe it didn't attack, but still, it melted an actual car).

Martin Lindsay was shocked to find his Jaguar XJ, parked nearby the building, displaying visible signs of damage after returning from a two hour business meeting. Thankfully, he won't be repairing the vehicle out of his own pocket, however he's not the first to fall victim to the unrelenting glare; a van is also reported to have suffered a similar fate.

City of London officials have hurriedly opened an investigation. For now though, watch where you park up. It could just save your car. [via The Verge]
