    Sir Keir Starmer has begun his damage limitation before the ballot boxes even open, after a new poll put the Conservatives 17 points ahead in the critical Hartlepool by-election. 

    With just 48 hours to go until the ballot box opens, Tory candidate Jill Mortimer is in the lead with 50 per cent, while Labour’s hopeful Paul Williams has slipped nine points to 33 per cent.

    The Labour leader told ITV’s GMB, which commissioned the poll, he was “climbing that mountain” to reconnect with voters.
