The Tory's lead over Labour has grown ahead of the snap election on December 12, the latest Britain Elects poll shows.

The new poll shows the Tories going up from 38 per cent of the vote on November 2 to 39 per cent by November 11.

Labour and the Liberal Democrats remain the same at 31 per cent and 15 per cent respectively. However, the Brexit Party's share has fallen from 9 per cent to 8 per cent.

The data was collected between November 8 and 11.

The latest poll was released after Mr Farage announced his decision on Monday to stand down Brexit Party candidates in Tory-held seats at the December 12 election.

In return, the Brexit Party leader called for Tories to stand aside in Labour-held seats to try to get more pro-Leave MPs elected.

The poll would appear to show those Brexit Party voters shifting to the Conservatives and strengthening Boris Johnson's lead.

The Tories also remain the bookies' favourite to win the election, with the shortest odds putting them at 1/16 ahead of Labour at 10/1 and the Lib Dems at 50/1.
