Firms reject toll idea to fund M4 relief road

Business leaders say they oppose any plans to use tolls from the two Severn bridges to finance an M4 relief road.

Last week a Welsh government adviser said borrowing for the project could be funded from toll income.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) said using tolls as a "cash cow" for the scheme was unacceptable.

But the Welsh government contradicted the adviser's remarks and said it would seek to reduce toll levels if control of the bridges was devolved.

James Williams reports.
