Manchester Congestion Charge

1.03 million people were reported as having voted in a local postal referendum about congestion charging in Manchester, which would effect the conurbation of about 2.5 million people. Of the 1.94 million voters this amounts to a response rate of 53.2%.

79% were against and The Guardian suggests that Cambridge, Bristol and Leeds are now likely to drop their congestion charge plans.
