The video shows cabin crew members pouring water onto the heated bag to cool the situation down.
Mr Levy said: 'I thought someone tried to attack me because I'm a known political figure and musician, but after investigation, it appeared to be an overheated portable charger in my backpack.'
The bag had previously unexpectedly imploded under a passenger seat. After clearing away the danger and following an investigation, the cause of the fire was found to be a portable charger that had overheated.
