Poll puts Labour on highest level of support since 2014
A new poll from Ipsos Mori has put Labour five points ahead of the Tories - one of the largest leads over the government since 2014 - and before Jeremy Corbyn became leader.
The new polling sees Keir Starmer's party on 42% - five points ahead of Boris Johnson's party - after a jump of five points following the free school meals row.
The Conservatives have slipped by three points to 37%.
The Lib Dems are on 8% while the Greens are on 5%.
The polling was conducted between 22 and 28 October, at the peak of the row over Marcus Rashford's campaign to provide free school meals during the holidays.
