David Cameron resigns as prime minister after Britain votes Brexit Featured
David Cameron has resigned as prime minister after Britain voted to leave the European Union.
Mr Cameron said the result was the "will of the British people" which was an "instruction which must be delivered".
The prime minister said the country required "fresh leadership" to "steer the country" out of the EU.
He said he will "steady the ship" over the coming months before stepping down in October.
The referendum, called by Mr Cameron, delivered a shock victory for the Leave campaign.
The Brexit vote immediately sent the pound tumbling and sparked calls for Mr Cameron's resignation.
