Astonishing pictures show the moment a cargo plane skidded off a runway in Italy, crashed through a barrier and ended up on the road with drivers.

The plane suffered a "runway overrun" upon landing at Bergamo airport, just outside Milan, at around 4am local time.

The DHL 737-400 aircraft had flown in from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris.

Photos show the plane straddling the central reservation in the early morning - quite a sight for your average driver.

The airport was temporarily closed, and passengers were delayed as flights were cancelled, including some from Ryanair.

Luckily, none of the crew or anyone on the ground was injured.
