David Macdonald said he would not now be standing as a candidate for Change UK

Change UK’s lead candidate for the EU elections in Scotland has quit the race and is now endorsing the Lib Dems.

David Macdonald is top of the Change UK list in Scotland, but said the party “don’t stand much of a chance” of winning a seat in the 23 May poll.

He urged pro-Remain voters to back the Lib Dems to avoid “splitting the vote” and benefiting pro-Brexit parties.

Change UK MP Chuka Umunna said it was “disappointing” that Mr Macdonald had “let down his fellow candidates”.
