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.

Some 35% of the public would vote for Labour, the poll found, while 32% would vote Conservative.

The poll shows a nine-point drop in support for the Conservatives compared to the same poll last month, and a four-point gain for Labour.

The Liberal Democrats polled at 11%, UKIP at 7%, the SNP at 5%, the Green Party at 4% and Plaid Cymru at 1%.
