Video footage showed emergency services rushing to the scene.

No-one was injured, according to the airport.

Posts on the Schipol's Twitter account said: "The landing gear of a Flybe airplane collapsed during touch down. All passengers are brought to the terminal by bus at the moment.

"No people are injured. Flight operation is up and running again."

Earlier today the airport tweeted footage of pilots fighting heavy winds to land. The post has since been deleted.

Flights across Europe have been disrupted today as Storm Doris lashes the continent.

Flybe tweeted: "We are aware of an incident involving one of our aircraft.

"We're getting more information and will provide further updates as soon we can."

The airline has been contacted for further comment.
