The final polls ahead the EU referendum are in with one of them putting the Remain camp significantly ahead of Leave, while others suggest the vote is still on a knife-edge.

A ComRes poll for the Daily Mail and ITV News gives the Remain campaign an eight-point cushion.

It shows that 48% of adults said they will back the UK staying in the EU while 42% said they intend to vote for Brexit.

But 11% of voters are still undecided, and once all of the don't knows are taken into account, Remain leads Leave by 54% to 46%.

But a YouGov poll has things much tighter with Remain ahead by just two points: 51% to Leave's 49%.

And an Opinium poll gives a narrow lead to Leave with 45% of voters backing Brexit to 44% for Remain, with 9% undecided.

The final poll undertaken by TNS has Leave two points ahead of Remain.

It has Leave on 43% and Remain on 41% with 16% either undecided or not intending to vote.

The final poll conducted by ORB International which was published on Tuesday had Remain on 54% and Leave on 46%.

Survation's final telephone poll gave Remain a narrow lead over Leave, 45% to 44% with 11% undecided.
