Andrew Granger, 34, from Glasgow, explained that his new mobile phone, Samsung Galaxy A02, which he bought three weeks ago, suddenly felt it burning his hand as he returned home from being out.

He dropped the phone to the ground as it made a loud bang and noticed that the battery exploded, with flames sparking from the device.

He quickly fetched water in a bid to extinguish the blaze, but it instantly spread to the curtains, before the firefighting team puts it out.
