[BENGALURU] British Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives took a one percentage point lead over the opposition Labour Party, according to a YouGov opinion poll for the Sun newspaper published on Monday.

The poll showed Conservatives on 35 per cent, up two points from Sunday, versus Labour at 34 per cent, unchanged from yesterday, polling company YouGov said.

The two main parties have been neck-and-neck in most opinion polls since the start of the year, with neither establishing a sustained lead exceeding the typical 3-point margin of error.

Opinion polls have consistently shown that neither of the two main parties is likely to win an overall majority in the 650-seat Parliament.
