Road tolls in the New Forest have been ruled out by the new boss of the organisation that runs the National Park.

Barry Foley, interim chief executive of the National Park Authority (NPA), said tolls were "off the agenda".

A proposal to introduce "road user pricing" in the Forest was included in the NPA's new management plan published last year.

Most of the controversy surrounding the document centred on plans to impose restrictions on horse owners and dog-walkers, including dog-free car parks.

However, the prospect of road tolls also received a massive thumbs down from the public.

Mr Foley said: "We don't consider road tolls to be the answer."
