M25 turns 25: Share your memories

Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher stands on an empty stretch of motorway in 1986 on the day she opened the "missing link" at Radlett, Hertfordshire.

The M25 will be 25-years-old on Saturday 29 October. How has the motorway changed your life?

The 117-mile (188km) orbital road took more than 11 years to build. It cost £1bn, and used more than two million tonnes of concrete and 3.5 million tonnes of asphalt.

The final section was opened by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in October 1986 to a huge fanfare.

Twenty five years on, we want your magical memories of the M25.
