MPs have told the government that plans for a toll road on the A14 in Cambridgeshire are "arbitrary and unfair" and threaten to damage economic growth in the eastern region.

The proposal for a new road to the north of Cambridge has been widely criticised by hauliers, motoring organisations and business groups.

Suffolk businessman Tim Meadows-Smith questioned why the road users should "pay another tax exclusive to Suffolk to use a road which has not been fit for purpose for years".
