A spokesperson for the Mersey Gateway Crossings Board said:

“We are disappointed by this decision.  We will now take time to review today’s decision with our external legal advisors and consider our next steps.

Since 19th April 2018 a new Charging Order has been in place. This new Charging Order now regulates the tolling on Mersey Gateway and it’s really important that everyone who uses the crossing pays their toll charge to avoid the risk of getting a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).”
