The poll also found that 74% of Labour supporters who expressed an opinion backed a second vote if the UK faced WTO terms and tariffs.

The figure was 81% among supporters of the SNP and Liberal Democrats, but just 36% among Tories.

The overall 57% figure is a marginal increase on last month, when 54% backed a second vote if Theresa May fails to strike a deal with Brussels.

*The poll was carried out by BMG Research for the progressive Left Foot Forward website. BMG Research interviewed a representative sample of 1,513 UK adults online between January 9 and 12.
