Politicians, academics and other leading figures have called for Brexit to be halted to prevent "disastrous consequences".

The signatories include Lord Campbell of Pittenweem, former leader of the Liberal Democrats, the former first minister Henry McLeish, the SNP MEP Alyn Smith, the former Tory MEP Struan Stevenson, and the former defence secretary and ex-Nato secretary general Lord Robertson.

"We recognise that a narrow majority voted to leave the European Union, but the disastrous consequences are now becoming ever clearer - every day".

Living standards are falling, inflation rising and growth and productivity slowing, top Scots warned in open letter.

'Our global reputation has been seriously damaged, leaving the United Kingdom weak, with diminished influence, in an increasingly uncertain and unstable world'.

He said: "Enough is enough because we see Brexit taking us towards a catastrophe - there are no perceived benefits - and in the meantime we see negotiations in Brussels going nowhere, we see a Cabinet and Government at Westminster shambolically handling affairs". What happens then to climate change?

"Politically of course, our partners might not be too thrilled if they'd wasted 18 months, 20 months negotiating with us, but I suspect it would be possible to get political agreement where you carry on as before".

He said he hoped to see a change in the Labour Party's position on Brexit following the general election result, which saw Jeremy Corbyn perform better than expected at the ballot box.

The letter to the Herald has also called for a "UK-wide debate about calling a halt to the process".

"There is a difference between saying that something is going to be hard and complex and saying it is already turning out to be a catastrophe", he added.

"Nobody is pretending this is easy or straight forward but we are getting on with the job".

"Even before the United Kingdom has left the European Union, we face falling living standards, rising inflation, slowing growth and lower productivity", the letter continued.

European Union citizens who have made a huge social and economic contribution to our society have been left in profound uncertainty - many have already left, many more are considering leaving.

It comes as UK Brexit Secretary David Davis called on both sides in the negotiations on the UK's departure from the European Union to "get down to business". "We need to think again about Brexit, to have a UK-wide debate about calling a halt to the process and changing our minds".

In a letter to The Herald they warn that Brexit has seriously damaged the UK's global reputation and called for a "UK-wide debate about calling a halt to the process".

In a democracy, it is always possible to think again and choose a different direction.

It concludes: 'We call for a national debate on Brexit. "It is time to call a halt to Brexit", the letter continues.
