Payout for owner of car 'scorched' by skyscraper

3 September 2013 Last updated at 18:53 BST

The developers of a new building in the City of London have paid almost £1,000 to a businessman whose car partly melted in sunlight reflecting off the building's windows.

The Jaguar was parked next to the so-called "Walkie Talkie" skyscraper when its door handles melted and a panel on the car buckled.

The developers say they are trying to rectify the problem which they are blaming on the position of the sun at certain times of day.
