You will be able to pay in advance of crossing the bridge or until midnight the day after crossing to pay. If you don’t pay you will recieve a Penalty Charge Notice.

If you don’t pay you will get a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) which a legal document that carries a fine of £40 that is sent to the registered keeper. The fine is reduced to £20 if paid within the first 14 days, this then goes to £40 within 28 days of issue, £60 within 42 days of issue and then after 42 days is registered as a civil debt.
