Send us your London traffic pictures
Congestion charge

It is the first day of the controversial congestion charge in London, where motorists will be charged a 5 fee to enter the city centre.

The scheme designed to alleviate traffic gridlock in London is the most ambitious ever undertaken by a capital city.

As the charge launched at 0700 GMT on Monday, there were no early signs of traffic chaos or major public transport problems partly due to lighter traffic during the half-term school holidays.

Cities around the world are watching closely to see whether London's congestion charge proves to be a success.

Have you been travelling into London's congestion charging zone?
