British Prime Minister Resigns After UK Votes to Leave European Union

David Cameron has resigned as Prime Minister after the British public rejected his personal entreaties and voted to leave the European Union.

"I am honoured to have been prime minister of this country for six years."
"The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered," those were the words of the Prime Minister with his voice breaking with emotion, and his wife, Samantha, standing beside him in Downing Street on Friday morning.

Cameron promised to remain in post until the autumn to "steady the ship", but also said "I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain who steers the country to its next destination."
He said he had already spoken to the Queen to make his plans clear.
His dramatic announcement came after a sharp fall in the pound and as £128bn was wiped off the FTSE 100.

Nigel Farage, the Ukip leader, became the first party leader to call for Cameron to go earlier on Friday, saying Britain needed a "Brexit prime minister".
Stay tuned as new things unfold in the UK.
