Conservative Brandon Lewis is on course to hold Great Yarmouth - but Labour is snapping at his heels, according to a poll by Lord Ashcroft.
The UK Independence Party does not look set to challenge in what has previously been described as a target seat.
According to the poll out today, 36pc of people are set to vote for Mr Lewis, who has been MP for five years, with 34pc saying they will vote for Labour candidate Lara Norris.
The UK Independence Party is 10 points behind on 24pc.
The poll was conducted between April 15 and April 24, and paid for by Tory peer Lord Ashcroft, a former Norwich School student.
