Britain goes to the polls Thursday in a snap election called in April by Prime Minister Theresa May.

But her hopes of winning a big majority have faded, as the main opposition Labour party appears to be closing the gap. As Henry Ridgwell reports, the campaign has been overshadowed by a series of terror attacks.
