Ms Sturgeon’s demand came as new studies exposed the scale of the damage to the British economy is there is no agreement and a cliff edge Brexit.

The Scotland chief said: “If the choice we face is between no deal and no detail, then an extension to the Article 50 negotiation period must be on the table as the only way to avoid an economic cliff edge, and allow all alternative options to be considered”.
