Motorists driving into the centre of London will have to pay a £5 toll, the
city's mayor has announced.
Ken Livingstone said he would push ahead with his plans in a move which he
believes will drastically reduce the amount of traffic on London streets.
Drivers entering the toll zone, which covers an area eight miles wide in
the centre of London, will have to pay a daily fee between 7am and 6.30pm
on weekdays, or face an £80 fine.
