The Remain campaign has seen a significant boost in support among definite voters, a poll has found.

The last ORB poll for the Daily Telegraph before the vote found the Remain campaign attracted 53 per cent of definite voters while Leave had 46 per cent.

The poll shows an eight-point net reversal from last week, when Leave had a one-point lead among definite voters with 49 per cent of the vote compared to 48 per cent for Remain.

It also found there was a large increase in the proportion of Remain voters saying they will definitely vote since the last poll, from 54 per cent to 69 per cent.

Turnout among Leave voters has dropped since the last poll from 69 per cent to 64 per cent.
