LONDON (Reuters) - The campaign to keep Britain in the European Union has widened its lead over the "Out" camp, according to an opinion poll by YouGov which was reported by a journalist at The Times newspaper.

Forty-four percent of respondents wanted Britain to stay in EU compared with 40 percent who wanted the country to leave, the poll showed, according to a message posted on Twitter by Times political correspondent Sam Coates.

The previous YouGov poll for The Times, published 10 days ago, gave the "In" camp a two-point lead, Coates said.
