The World Trade Organisation's former director-general has warned that the UK economy risks a "huge blow" if it relies on the agency's global trading rules in the case of an EU leave vote.

Peter Sutherland told the BBC that the UK's services would be particularly vulnerable, while manufacturers would face "appalling complexity".

Vote Leave campaigners argue that the UK can rely on World Trade Organisation rules in a Brexit vote.

A high-profile campaigner said that Sutherland's fears were misplaced.
