UK faces 'closest poll in decades'

(REUTERS) - Britain is facing its closest election in decades and the likelihood that no party will win an overall majority in parliament. Party leaders are looking to drum up support as the clock ticks down to polling day on May 7th.

"In the closing hours of this campaign you can make all the difference, with our country moving forward, no going backward with Ed Milliband and SNP, that's what it's about." said Prime Minister David Cameron.

Mr Cameron's Conservatives are neck and neck with their Labour party rivals led by Ed Milliband.

"Let's elect a Labour government and make this country work for working people. Thank you very much." said Mr Milliband.
