LBC listeners from across the world called in to share their memories of the 9/11 terror attacks and how they were impacted, ahead of the 20th anniversary.

On Saturday, people across the world will honour the 2,983 men, women and children killed in the attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York City, which saw four aircraft - hijacked by Al-Qaeda - crashing into prominent landmarks.

Of those killed, 246 were on the four planes, 2,606 were in the World Trade Centre and the surrounding area, and 125 were at the Pentagon.

LBC listeners shared what they were doing on the day of the attacks and how they were personally impacted.
