Operation Yellowhammer report is Project Fear on steroids, says Tory MP

Conservative MP Nigel Evans has labelled the government's own report into the worst-case scenario of what will happen following a no-deal Brexit as "Project Fear on steroids".

The documents, which the government were forced to release last night, reveal the worst case scenario could see major hold-ups at channel ports, possible food and medicine shortages, and public disorder.

But speaking to Nick Ferrari on LBC, Mr Evans dismissed the concerns.

He said: "Yellowhammer is nothing more than worst-case scenario. And it's worst-case scenario on steroids. It's worst-case scenario if the government did no mitigation whatsoever.

"The fact is that the government has spent something in the region of £8billion in mitigation and preparation of what might happen.

"Yellowhammer is nothing more than Project Fear on steroids."
