Calls for M6 toll charges to be scrapped during congestion

There have been renewed calls for the M6 toll to be made free to drivers at times of heavy congestion on the M6.

A serious incident in February saw the M6 closed for 24 hours and on Monday night it was shut for 10 hours after a fuel spillage.

MPs have debated the issue at Westminster. Julian Knight, Conservative MP for Solihull, said it was a rich person's motorway. "It was designed as the Birmingham relief road, but it brings no relief", he said.
