Calls for Severn Bridge tolls cut after 2018

Cross-party calls have been made for the Severn Bridge tolls to be cut drastically when the UK government takes control of charges after 2018.

More than 80,000 vehicles use the two crossings each day, with the cost ranging from £6.40 for cars to £19.20 for lorries.

The money is collected by a private company and the funds are used to pay the construction costs of the bridges.

That debt is due to be cleared by 2018, when they revert to public ownership.

Tomos Livingstone reports.
