Reactions to expected scrapping of A14 toll

Campaigners battling against plans to toll part of the A14 look to have won their battle.

The Government is expected to announce tomorrow that it's dropping plans to charge drivers to use a section of the road.

The toll money would have gone towards the 1.5 billion pound project to improve the road. It's now thought the taxpayer will foot the bill.

John Howells is from the Road Haulage Association in Peterborough. He told ITV Anglia News that a toll would be the wrong way to go.
