Britain in final hours of tight election campaign

Britain goes to the polls today in the closest general election for a generation - but voters may have to wait days for a new government as politician’s battle to take power.

The election looks set to deliver a minority government for the first time since 1974 but could also push Britain closer to leaving the European Union and hasten Scottish independence.

Prime Minister David Cameron's centre-right Conservatives, leaders of a coalition government since 2010, are fighting to stay in office but are at level pegging with Ed Miliband's centre-left Labour in opinion polls.

While the leaders of both main parties insist in public they can win a clear majority in the 650-seat House of Commons, they will almost certainly have to work with smaller parties to form a government.
