M4 relief road around Newport 'will not have tolls'

Drivers would not be charged a toll to drive on a proposed M4 relief road in south Wales, the Welsh government has said.

The BBC has been told the Treasury is backing plans to build a new stretch of motorway around Newport.

A Westminster source said agreement in principle had been reached but a deal on funding was not finalised.

However, the Welsh government said introducing a toll to pay for the road would be "unfair" and "unworkable".
