A new poll has predicted a Labour landslide in Greater Manchester - with the Tories set to lose ALL their seats in the region.

Data from YouGov suggests only three Conservative seats would remain in the North West if voters went to the polls today. It forecasts current blue seats, including Sir Graham Brady's in Altrincham and Sale West, turning red with Labour largely set to make huge gains.

Nationally, the poll suggests Labour is set for the biggest victory in the party's history, with 422 seats to 140 for the Tories. Several big name Conservative candidates are on course for defeat including former Tory Chairman Jake Berry and Esther McVey.

Only two seats in the region - Cheadle and Hazel Grove - are predicted to break Labour's clean sweep, with both forecast to pick the Liberal Democrats.

The poll, using the MRP (multi-level regression and post-stratification) technique and carried out for Sky News, collected data from collected more than 58,000 people before voters go to the polls on July 4.

Sir Keir is projected to become prime minister next month with his party clocking up more gains than at any election since 1945, potentially leaving the Tories with their lowest number of MPs since 2001.

MRP models the outcome of the election in every constituency across Britain by identifying the views of different types of voters and then the type of voters in each seat.

The Liberal Democrats would win 48 seats, according to the forecast, with the SNP on 17 and the Green Party gaining another MP.

A separate MRP analysis, published by More in Common and the News Agents podcast earlier on Monday, had suggested that Labour was on course for its biggest majority in 23 years.

That analysis is based on voting intention data collected between April 9 and May 29 from 15,089 adults in Great Britain.
