BBC News - 'Walkie-Talkie' skyscraper melts Jaguar car parts
Well....it's an English car, innit?
"Eastcheap"...shouldn't have parked where it's cheap then.

Never mind cooking an egg, you could probably make a cup of tea...
To put it into persective, though, it's generally expected that cladding in UK can reach temperatures of up to 85C (subject to colour and texture) so the building may only be contributing 8 degrees.
Nothing to do with me, guv!
I gather that the developers have found a solution Nurse! The Screens!
I look forward to the news report that the screen has caught fire/melted in due course.
Simple. Provide the window cleaners with diamond rings. The scratches will ruin the reflectiviciousness of the glass.
