Odds of Brexit have been shortened again as confidence in a vote to leave Europe grows.

The likelihood of Britain leaving the EU has increased to 29 per cent, or odds of 9/4, according to Ladbrokes.

Remaining a part of the bloc is still the most likely outcome in the 23 June referendum, however, that has shrunk, with the likelihood of Brexit gauged at 23 per cent earlier this week.

"As we enter the final stretch confidence over Brexit is high. Punters are backing Leave like it's going out of fashion and if the money continues it won't be long before the odds shorten once again," said Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes

According to the latest poll on the EU referendum - Opinium for the Observer - the Leave campaign has grabbed a three point lead over Remain, with the sides standing at 43 per cent versus 40 per cent, respectively.
