Manchester roundly rejects the congestion charge
So there we go, Greater Manchester has roundly booted out the idea of having a congestion charge.
The "yes" vote was no where near in any of the ten boroughs.
The idea was most popular in Manchester itself, but even there only 28% of voters said they were in favour.
It was least popular in neighbouring Salford, where 84% were against.
This could be very good news for Liverpool and Merseyside. Up to ÃÂ£3bn was to be poured into public transport in Greater Manchester.
Merseyside and Merseytram could now be line for a slice of the cash.
But if that does happen, don't expect it to be a straight forward process.
