David Cameron has resigned as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
In the wake of a vote to leave the European Union, Mr Cameron said that ‘the will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered’.
He went on to state that he was proud to serve as the Prime Minister of the UK for six years, stating that he ‘held nothing back, and that the country requires fresh leadership’.
The aim would be to have a new Prime Minister in place by the time of the Conservative Party Conference in October.
No immediate plans for any potential General Election have been announced.
