More than half of the public would like the final Brexit deal to be put to a referendum, with just 32% opposing such a measure, a new poll has found.
The Kantar poll found that 51% of Britons would like a referendum to be held on the deal once negotiations between the government and the EU have come to an end.
Just 32% would not like another referendum to be held, with the remaining 17% saying that they do not know.
Support for a referendum on the deal includes more than one in three who voted Leave in the 2016 referendum (35%) and 67% of people who voted Remain.
The polling also put Labour three points ahead of the Conservative party on voting intention.
