A new London skyscraper dubbed the "Walkie Talkie" has been blamed for reflecting light which melted parts of a car parked on a nearby street.

Martin Lindsay parked his Jaguar on Eastcheap, in the City of London, on Thursday afternoon and returned to find a member of the public photographing the vehicle.

Speaking to the BBC's Alex Bushill, he said: "It's absolutely ruined. I've been told the damage is about £1,000."
