Conservative MP for Waveney, Peter Aldous, has backed a campaign opposing government plans to turn the A14 into a toll road.

Suffolk Chamber of Commerce's "No Toll Tax on Suffolk" says making drivers pay to use the road would have detrimental consequences to the county.

Mr Aldous joins a growing group of people and businesses to express concern at the plans.

The government says the tax is necessary in order to carry out improvement works on the road.
