Travelling from Cornwall to Plymouth could be about to get more expensive.

Tamar Tag users could be charged an extra 80p a month to cross the bridge or the Torpoint Ferry.

It is part of plans to plug a million pound a year budget gap.

A consultation is underway.

Martin Lyne from Roseland haulage company Maen Karn Aggregates said: "We use the bridge daily, probably between 14 and 16 times every day running clay from Cornwall into Plymouth. We've not got an alternative route that we could use and a lot of this we would have to absorb; we would have a job to recoup that cost."
