David Cameron resigns as PM after Britain votes to leave EU

STEPPING DOWN: David Cameron

DAVID CAMERON has resigned as Prime Minister after the UK voted to leave the European Union (EU).

Cameron, who campaigned for Britain to stay in the EU, said the country required "fresh leadership".

"I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination," he said in a statement outside Downing Street moments ago.

He promised to "steady the ship" over the coming months before stepping down in October.

Mr Cameron was close to tears as he announced his decision.

The referendum, called by Cameron, delivered a shock victory for the Leave campaign.

He said the result was the "will of the British people" which was an "instruction which must be delivered".
