The Office for Budget Responsibility's Fiscal Risks Report makes alarming reading for Theresa May. We've boiled it down so you didn't have to

15:27, 13 JUL 2017

The Tory government's own watchdog has released its vast first report about the biggest risks to the economy.

And the 300-page dossier makes alarming reading for Theresa May, saying Brexit and her grip on power are all "fiscal risks" that could hurt us down the line.

Chancellor Philip Hammond has welcomed the "sobering" report - and says Jeremy Corbyn would ignore its warnings.

But Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell says the report shows "one of the biggest risks to our economy is Theresa May’s weak government."

We admit it, the Office for Budget Responsibility's [OBR] Fiscal Risks Report is probably not the most exciting thing you've ever read.

So we've boiled it down to seven points that are most likely to hit you.

Read them if you dare.
