Alex Salmond said that any Brexit deal that did not keep the UK inside the EU’s single market would trigger an early Scottish referendum.

Talking during his LBC phone in show with Iain Dale he said that a deal that did not keep Scotland inside the market would be grounds for an early second referendum on Scottish independence.

“The SNP is a pro-independence party but Nicola Sturgeon has identified that our key priority is to keep Scotland within that single market place.”

“I think she is right to prioritise that.”

He added: “I think that (single market membership) would affect the timing as opposed to whether there was a referendum, because I think if there is no compromise or no ability to keep Scotland within the single market within the context of the UK, that will mean an early referendum - if there is, the referendum might be later.”
