A campaign plane carrying Donald Trump's running mate Mike Pence has slid off the runway while landing at New York's LaGuardia airport.

The Boeing 737, tore up two tracks of concrete on the runway before coming to rest on a patch of grass. No injuries have been reported.

It is reported around 30 people were on board the plane which was returning to the east coast from from a campaign event in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

The takeoff from Iowa had been delayed for about two hours because of bad weather in New York.

The US Republican vice presidential nominee can be seen standing in the rain among emergency vehicles, talking to police and other officials. He later thanked them on Twitter.

Mr Trump called Pence to check on him after the incident, the campaign said.

"Mr Trump did reach out to Gov Pence. He's glad that everyone on board is safe," Trump spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in an emailed statement.

Mr Trump called him from his motorcade while en route to a rally in Geneva, Ohio.
