Gordon Brown warns of food supply consequences in the event of a no-deal Brexit

Former prime minister Gordon Brown has called for a no-deal Brexit to be stopped "in its tracks" as he warned of the consequences on a visit to a Liverpool bakery. The former Labour leader visited the Homebaked co-operative bakery in Anfield on Monday but warned poverty in the area could get worse if Britain leaves the European Union with no deal. He joined the GMB union, campaign group Hope Not Hate and food charity Sustain in writing a letter to warn Prime Minister Boris Johnson that crashing out of the EU threatened food supplies.
