Respected social research body NatCen also published a poll that had Remain on 53 per cent and Leave on 47 per cent, using a method that took on recommendations by an official inquiry into why pollsters got last year’s election wrong and conducted from May 16 to June 12.

However, an online poll by YouGov for The Times showed Leave ahead on 44 per cent, up one point, with Remain on 42 per cent, down two points. The YouGov survey was conducted over the weekend after Cox was killed.
