Three straight polls have shown a Labour surge.
Hopes that Labour can form a government have been boosted by three polls which show them narrowing the Conservatives’ poll lead.
Two UK-wide polls suggest that support for Labour has risen over the last week.
A poll from Wales also suggests that, since the start of the election campaign, Labour have overtaken the Tories as the most popular party.
Hopes of a Conservative majority are widely considered to rest on the party picking up seats in Wales, the Midlands and the North of England – to offset probable losses in London, the South-West and Scotland.
Several bookmakers shortened their odds on a Labour majority while lengthening the odds on a Tory majority – although the Conservatives remain strong favourites to form the next government.
Bet365, PaddyPower and Betfred reduced the odds of a Labour majority to between 16/1 and 20/1. The odds of a Tory majority drifted to 4/9. A Labour minority government is at about 5/1.
