LONDON (Reuters) - The campaign to keep Britain inside the European Union has an 8 percentage point lead over those pushing for an exit from the bloc, an opinion poll showed on Tuesday.

The Ipsos MORI telephone survey showed 49 percent would vote to remain in the EU at the June 23 referendum, compared to 41 percent who said they would vote to leave.

The poll of 1,023 adults was conducted between March 19 and March 22, meaning it does not fully reflect any impact on voting intentions of bombings in Brussels on March 22 which killed 35 people.
