Credit cards 'to be used for Severn Bridge toll'

Deputy first minister Ieuan Wyn Jones told the assembly debit and credit cards could be used by the end of the year at the toll booths.

At present drivers must pay by cash or using an electronic scanning device.

Mr Jones added: "I think it's an excellent innovation."

However, before the use of debit and credit cards can be introduced, UK legislation concerning payments for crossings must be amended as it does not currently permit card payments.

According to a spokesperson for the UK Department of Transport, the amendment has been initiated, but is yet to be completed.

Motorists looking for a rewards credit card may want to consider the AA card, which allows users to collect points to be used on fuel and motoring items.
