Almost half of Britons believe Theresa May should quit as prime minister, according to polls conducted since the general election.

And Jeremy Corbyn has drawn level in a poll asking who should be the next leader of the UK.

A YouGov poll for the 'Sunday Times' suggested 48pc thought she should stand down, with 38pc saying she should stay.

YouGov found that Mrs May and Mr Corbyn are neck-and-neck when the public were asked who would make the best prime minister - with both leaders standing at 39pc.

Meanwhile, a poll by Survation for the 'Mail on Sunday' had 49pc of people saying that she should quit, with 38pc saying she should remain in the post.

The Survation study gave Labour a six-point lead over the Tories, with Jeremy Corbyn's party on 45pc and the Tories on 39pc.
