A growing number of British people believe they are worse off under Brexit, a new poll has suggested.

The number of people in Britain who believe their daily lives are worse since exiting the European Union is now 45%, up from 30% a year ago.

The number of Leave voters believing they are worse off has more than doubled from 10% to 22%, according to the poll carried out by IPSOS in partnership with the EU-UK Forum.

The number who think their lives are better since Brexit has also increased, but they are a smaller group at 17% up from 10%.

Overall, more people are feeling a change as a result, with those reporting no difference now 34% compared to 58% in 2021.

Kelly Beaver, CEO of IPSOS UK and Ireland, said more people had made up their minds and it reflected what people are seeing in their daily lives with concerns about the cost of living and the tight labour market.

Speaking at the EU-UK Forum, she said it was against a background of a "sombre public mood" with two thirds believing Britain is going in the wrong direction.

Overall, 78% believed that a close relationship with the EU is important, with trade at 33% and controlling cross channel migration at 22% being the top priorities.

Stability in Northern Ireland was well down the list and was a priority with just 10% of respondents.

Meanwhile, most people in Northern Ireland do not support the unilateral action being taken by Britain to rewrite the protocol, another poll has suggested.

A total of 74% said they would prefer to see the UK and EU reaching an agreement, according to the study by Lucid Talk on behalf of Queen's University Belfast.

A total of 57% of respondents do not believe UK's unilateral action is justified and 84% do not trust the UK government.
