You may have answered your own question (often termed 'leaf scorch'), this tends to start at the tips and work inwards.
Where the sides of the leaves are also affected this can be a sign of plant stress for reasons varying from lack of water, constricted roots, poor water retention in the soil or even damaged roots. 
I am not sure when the photos were taken so it's difficult to give a definitive answer but you can hopefully work out the reason based upon where your plant is positioned.

If this is recent growth then it is highly likely to suffer from the causes of cold winds and early morning frosts in the manner shown in your pictures (my montanas are yet to produce any leaves).
The fact your plant has leaves already is probably down to the fact that you live in London (which is generally a little warmer) and the relative place where the plant is situated.
