It's bad news for Cameron, but even worse news for Clegg

The paper said that it represented Labour's biggest lead over the Conservatives for the decade. The last time support for Labour peaked this high was in December 2002 when Tony Blair was in Downing Street and Iain Duncan Smith was the Tory leader.

The poll findings also make grim reading for Mr Cameron's coalition partners, the Liberal Democrats, who are on just 9% - level pegging with the UK Independence Party.

Angus Reid surveyed 2,026 people on 8 June.
