The cost of driving on the M6 Toll will increase by up to 50p per journey from 12 July onwards.

Midland Expressway Limited have revealed that the costs of weekday journeys between 07:00 and 19:00 will rise by 30p to £6.70 for cars, 50p to £11.80 for vans and 50p to £12 for lorries.

An RHA spokeswoman said: "Any increase in toll charges is unwelcome for the hard-pressed heavy haulage trade struggling with clean air zone charging and tight profit margins.

"Many operators have been put off using the M6 Toll for this very reason."
