NIGEL Farage's Brexit Party is on course to win next month's European elections, a poll published today has suggested.

The survey found the Leave supporting party would get 27% of the vote across the UK, with Labour netting 22% and the Tories plummeting to 15%.

It also showed that the SNP would come top in Scotland - getting 35% of the vote.

Labour would be second on 16%, while the Greens and the Brexit Party would take joint third place on 13%. The Tories would be pushed into fourth place on just 10%.

Researchers for YouGov carried out the poll on Monday and yesterday, asking 1855 adults across the UK for how they would intend to vote in the European elections.

The sample size was small north of the Border with just 176 people taking part.

The elections will take place on next month if the UK is still in the EU.

Theresa May wants to get her withdrawal agreement passed in the Commons. However, it has been defeated three times by a high majority.

Last week the Prime Minister agreed with European leaders to delay the UK's departure from the EU until 31 October if her deal is not passed before the European Parliament elections.
