London - Ahead of Britain's 7 May election, the opposition Labour Party and Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives remained locked in a statistical tie, according to a YouGov poll for the Sun newspaper published on Wednesday.

Thirty-four percent of voters supported the Labour Party, unchanged from Tuesday, polling company YouGov said. The Conservatives had 33%, down one percentage point from the previous day's survey.

The poll gave the anti-European Union UK Independence Party, or UKIP, a one-point increase to 14%.

The two main parties have been neck-and-neck in most opinion polls since the start of the year, with neither establishing a sustained lead exceeding the typical 3-percentage-point margin of error.

Opinion polls have consistently shown that neither the Conservatives nor Labour are likely to win an overall majority in the 650-seat Parliament.
