INDEPENDENTS, Greens and UKIP look to be heading for a poor showing in the Cambridgeshire County Council elections if the result of the Cambs Times/ Wisbech Standard/ Cambs 24 on line poll is anything to go by.

By midday today nearly 4,500 votes had been cast in our on line poll but only two per cent- just 104 of you- had decided to support an independent candidate.

UKIP fared marginally better with five per cent of the predicted vote, gaining 232 votes in our on line poll.

But the most intriguing contest remains that between Conservatives and Labour with just 260 votes dividing the parties.

The poll gives Conservative 1,798 votes (41 per cent) whilst Labour received 35 per cent of the votes (1,534).

Liberal Democrats remain in the place with just 14 per cent - a total of 609 votes.

Conservative - 41 % - 1798 votes

Labour - 35% - 1534 votes

Liberal Democrats - 14% - 609 votes

Green Party - 2% - 71 votes

UKIP - 5% - 232 votes

Don't Know - 1% - 64 votes

Independent/Other - 2% - 104 votes
