New polling has showed the biggest mover in the polls over the last week has been in Labour's favour - suggesting the race is between two horses once again.

According the polling website Britain Elects the Tories have dropped 0.2% since the last major tracker update on November 5th.

By contrast Labour has risen 2.2% in support rising to 28.6%.

This is despite the Conservatives benefiting from the Brexit Party stepping down in a number of Tory-held seats.

Their support is now down 1.3% trailing at 9.3%. The Lib Dems are at 16.3%, with little change in the polling tracker.

The Greens are down 0.5% with support at 3%.

Britain Elects also reports support for other parties is down 0.2% at 5.9%.

But the opposition still has a mountain to climb with an 8.6% gap between the two leading parties.

Polling expert John Curtice has claimed the chances of a Labour majority were "as close to zero as one can safely say it to be" - but added he could still become prime minister in the event of a hung parliament.
