Budget 2015: Severn Bridge tolls cuts 'will help businesses'

Wales Office Minister Alun Cairns has said he hopes the cut to Severn Bridge tolls will give small businesses a fairer deal.

Chancellor George Osborne announced in his Budget speech on Wednesday that Severn Bridge tolls for cars and vans will be cut to £5.40 in 2018.

He said that VAT on the charges will be scrapped when the two bridges return to public ownership.

The current charge is £6.50 for cars and £13.10 for vans.
