Neither David Cameron's Conservatives nor Ed Miliband's Labour Party is forecast to win an overall majority in Britain's 650-seat parliament in the 7 May election. Both parties have lost support to once fringe parties such as the Scottish National Party and the UK Independence Party.
With no clear poll leader, all of the major parties (and some of the minor ones) have been campaigning hard and posing for photo opportunities, which don't always quite come off.
IBTimesUK presents a second round-up some amusing recent campaign photos. See the first instalment here.
