UK - London - Walkie Talkie building reflecting sunlight to dangerous levels

London, UK. Wednesday 4th September 2013. Urgent action in planned to "cover up" the Walkie Talkie skyscraper in the City after sunlight reflected from the building melted a car on the streets below. Temperatures have been measured in excess of 50 degrees C, and as much as 70 degrees at it's peak. The 525ft building has been renamed the "Walkie Scorchie" after its distinctive concave surfaces reflected a dazzling beam of light which has caused extensive damage to nearby buildings.
