The Green Party is within 1% of topping Labour in the latest European election opinion polls - as the Lib Dems continue to surge into second place.

The latest YouGov poll, which comes just 24 hours before the European elections, found that the Liberal Democrats are now in a comfortable second place as the opposition to Nigel Farage, who has 37% of the support.
