A Delta plane has skidded off a runway while landing at New York’s LaGuardia Airport and crashed through a fence.

The MD-80 went off the runway at around 11.10am local time, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Joe Pentangelo said.

No injuries have been reported, the fire department of New York said.

Images show the plane resting in the snow with the nose of the jet through a chain-link fence. Passengers are getting off the plane and trudging through the snow.

Mr Pentangelo said the plane is apparently leaking fuel.

It is not clear how many people were on board or where the flight had originated.
