LONDON, May 13 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party has an 18 point lead over the main opposition Labour Party ahead of a June 8 national election, according to an opinion poll conducted by Comres for the Sunday Mirror and the Independent.

The Conservatives were at 48 percent, down 2 percent from Comres’ previous poll published on April 23, against Labour’s 30 percent, an increase of 5 points.

The poll put the centrist Liberal Democrats on 10 percent, down 2 percent, and the anti-European Union UK Independence Party at 5 percent, also down 2 percent.
