More in Common's polling finds Labour leading the Conservatives by 12 points - the lowest Labour lead we've recorded since May. Cost of living remains the overwhelming top concern among the public, followed by the NHS and climate change.

"After months of stability, our latest poll shows a modest bump for the Conservatives and the lowest Labour lead since May. However the stark fact is that, following a Party Conference season that fired the starting gun on the next General Election, the Conservatives remain 12 points behind. The Government’s sole hope for re-election is that rising wages and falling inflation lead to people feeling better off, but with 73% of the public still saying the cost of living is the top issue facing the country, that shift in the public mood seems a distant prospect."
