Former Tory MEP Struan Stevenson warns of Brexit farm ‘meltdown’

A former Tory MEP has said Brexit will lead to “certain meltdown” in rural Scotland with cheap food imports pushing farmers out of business.

Struan Stevenson predicted that markets will decline sharply as competition from outside the EU expands.

NFU Scotland said it was an “extremist” view but that it still had to be taken on board.

UK environment secretary Michael Gove has insisted that leaving the EU would be an “opportunity” for farmers.
