Responding to the announcement that Diageo's Leven plant in Fife is facing 70 redundancies and a further 35 redundancies at its Shieldhall site, near Glasgow, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:

"This is the cold sober reality of a hard Conservative Brexit. This is a huge employer in parts of Fife and Glasgow that needs the jobs.

"The Conservatives need to explain to the workers at these plants why they soon won't be getting a wage at the end of the month.

"Liberal Democrats are giving the voters in the general election a choice to change the direction of the country. We can turn back from the economic consequences of Brexit if we choose."
