David Cameron's Wikipedia page hacked with huge picture of Ed Miliband's face

Published 07/05/2015

David Cameron's Wikipedia page has been hacked as the nation goes to the polls on election day.

The Conservative leader's page now bears a large photograph of Labour leader Ed Miliband and states 'Vote Labour'.

This is all that can be seen as you continue to scroll down the page.

It comes as voting is under way in the most uncertain General Election for decades, with a final batch of opinion polls showing the two main parties still neck-and-neck.

Ipsos MORI in the Evening Standard puts the Conservatives on 36% and Labour on 35% while the Ashcroft National Poll has the two parties tied on 33%.

With all the indications that the country is heading for another hung parliament, it is still unclear where the balance of power will lie after voting closes at 10pm.

Both the latest opinion polls have Ukip on 11%, with Ipsos MORI putting the Liberal Democrats on 8% while the Ashcroft National Poll has them on 10%.

With so much at stake, party leaders were out early to cast their votes.

Polling stations will be open until 10pm in what will be the busiest General Election day since 1979, with nearly 10,000 council seats also up for grabs.

There are contests for 290 councils and six mayors in England.
