Emerging from talks between the United Kingdom and devolved administrations on Brexit that also focused on no-deal preparations, the Scottish Government's constitutional relations secretary warned of "a danger that becomes self-fulfilling".

Still, the notices offer a glimpse of just how complicated the government believes the divorce could become after 46 years inside the European club.

Mr Russell said: "Although the Scottish Government is doing everything within its power to protect Scotland as best we can, these technical notices make plain the crippling costs and needless red tape that a "no-deal" scenario will bring".

British Prime Minister Theresa May will hold a special three-hour cabinet meeting Thursday to discuss preparations for a no-deal Brexit.

United Kingdom passports will continue to be issued in the old burgundy style before and after March 30, until the new blue design is ready in late 2019.

The papers are an attempt to show that Britain is seriously planning for a no-deal Brexit in order to strengthen its negotiating hand with Brussels, although Theresa May has repeatedly said that she would prefer to strike a withdrawal deal with the European Union by November that would than have to be ratified by parliament.

"Following the publication of the latest tranche of scenarios for a no-deal Brexit, it has emerged that drivers in the north will no longer be able to drive across the border without an worldwide driving permit", the Sinn Fein MEP said.

Accusing the Sinn Fein MEP of "whinging", Mr Wilson continued: "This is only in the event of a no-deal Brexit".

This follows Raab's confirmation that the United Kingdom will not pay its £39 billion (€44 billion) "divorce bill" to Brussels if there is no overall deal on its departure from the EU. The automotive, airline, aerospace and chemicals sectors would be most severely affected, Moody's said, as they account for the largest trade flows in goods with the EU.

The other 27 members of the European Union combined have about five times the economic might of Britain.

They follow a similar batch published last month, which are meant to inform businesses and citizens on steps they would need to take in the event of a no deal. "That is why we must have a people's vote on the final Brexit deal".

"With the level of uncertainty facing consumers and the economy, in part due to ongoing Brexit negotiations, forecasting is particularly hard", John Lewis said.

However, if Britain crashes out without a deal then that could all come to an end.
