Latest poll (YouGov/Sun) Labour 59 seats short of a majority.

Britain remains on course for a hung parliament at the election, according to a new opinion poll which shows the Conservatives' lead falling to four points.

The latest daily YouGov poll for the Sun puts the Tories down one to 34 per cent, the Lib Dems up two to 30 per cent and Labour up one to 28 per cent. If repeated at the election on a uniform swing, the figures would leave Labour 59 seats short of a majority in a hung parliament.

The poll suggests that support for the Lib Dems, though down from a peak of 34 per cent last week, remains strong and that Nick Clegg's party could push Labour into third place for the first time since 1918.

The New Statesman Poll of Polls, based on the last five opinion polls, has the Tories on 34.8 per cent, the Lib Dems on 28.2 per cent and Labour on 27.8 per cent.
