At least 19 people have been injured in a plane crash near the city of Pretoria in South Africa.

Local emergency services posted a picture on Twitter showing passengers being helped from the burning wreckage of a plane in a grassy field.

“Medics from ER24 and other services are at the scene of a plane crash at Wonderboom in Pretoria,” said a spokesman for ER24.

“We have 19 injured casualties ranging from minor to critical injuries at this stage and no confirmed fatalities.”

The aircraft was marked “Martin’s Air Charter”, which was the previous name of the Dutch cargo airline Martinair. The name was changed in 1966.
