The lasting damage to Boris Johnson from the sleaze chaos and Tory infighting was underlined today as a poll found Labour gaining ground.

The latest research by Opinium gave Keir Starmer's party a two point lead, consolidating the one-point advantage from a fortnight ago.

The Labour leader's own ratings have also improved dramatically - turning positive for the first time in six months while the PM remains in the doldrums.

Some 32 per cent approve of Sir Keir's performance, with 31 per cent disapproving. But for Mr Johnson the figures were 31 per cent and 48 per cent - a net negative 17 points.

In a crumb of comfort for Mr Johnson, he still has a narrow lead when voters were asked who they preferred as PM, by 29 per cent to 27 per cent. But the highest score was for 'none of the above'.
