The Scottish Nationalist Party's Mhairi Black has accused the government of showing an "incredible lack of leadership" over Brexit and offering "no coherent details" over their their plans.

She said that the devolved administrations of Scotland and Wales had been treated in an "appalling" manner.

"We are no further forward in understanding what Brexit actually means, we are having no coherent or reasonable responses to the fact tat Scotland voted to remain within the EU," she told Peston on Sunday.

The government can't seem to answer very, very simple questions about access to the single market and things like that.
