Crowds gather as a television crew try to fry an egg as the sun glares down from a new office building in the financial district in London, England. The concave side wall of the 37-storey skyscraper at 20 Fenchurch Street, known locally as the 'Walkie Talkie' building, has been blamed for reflecting the intense sunlight that we have been experiencing of late onto a nearby street. A member of the public had parked his car close by to the building last week and when he returned parts of his Jaguar had melted. Some shops have also been damaged.
