The organiser for the campaign group against Severn bridge tolls is warning that unless urgent action is taken to stop the UK government from increasing the toll charges every year, motorists could end up paying £10 to cross the bridges into Wales.
Councillor John Warman says road users face a "bleak year" and will now have to pay £6.20 as the rate of inflation rises to 3.3 per cent. The campaigner says the rise would have a "devastating effect on the economy in Wales and stunt growth".
Cllr Warman is calling on the Welsh Secretary David Jones to justify the hike in tolls to the people of Wales as he claims the cost of building the bridges has already been paid off.
Campaign Against Severn Bridge Tolls says it will be stepping up its campaign in the new year.
