Lord Ashcroft poll finds Norwich North on an election knife edge

The fight for Norwich North is on a knife edge - but Labour could just edge it, a new poll suggests.
The latest Lord Ashcroft survey, published today, suggest Jessica Asato will be victorious and the key Norfolk marginal will turn red next Thursday.
But the 1,000-strong sample could have a margin of error of about 3pc, meaning the seat is too close to call between Labour and Conservative Chloe Smith.
It reflects the uncertain picture across the country, with a final round of polls suggesting 'mixed news' for the two main parties.
The peer, who is a former Norwich School student, said: 'After more than a year and nearly a quarter of a million telephone interviews, we have reached the final round of my general election constituency polling. The last ten surveys contain mixed news for all parties and some noteworthy results.
