Opinion polls suggest Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party is up to 20 percentage points ahead of Labour ahead of the June 8 election.

"We will be setting out our policies in the manifesto when we publish it tomorrow", May told a news conference.

Labour is defending its plans to exert state control over key utilities amid uncertainty over what the final price tag will be and how it will be paid for.

She insisted a majority of Scots are in favour of this, pointing to the decision to reject independence in 2014 and the vote to remain in the European Union previous year as opposition to Tory plans for a hard Brexit. "These are made up numbers based on a shambolic manifesto with a £58 billion black hole at its heart".
