Former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has called on Prime Minister to call an early election.

In response, the Prime Minister countered that the Coalition Government had brought in a fixed-term Parliament, and that the decision on whether to call a general election would be the decision of his successor.

Mr Clegg also thanked David Cameron for his "service to the nation" during the five years he led the Coalition Government.

He also spoke of the Prime Minister to see politics from "other people's point of view".

European leaders warn loss of Britain will harm EU

There have been calls among European leaders for the European Union to reform as they continued to react with sadness to Britain's exit.

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi tweeted: "We have to change (the EU) to make it more human and more just, but Europe is our home, it's our future."

Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Roivas said Europe must "work hard" to protect the EU's unity. He said Britain's departure was a "great loss".

Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern warned Britain's exit would harm the other nations, but said he doubted it would trigger a series of referendums among other EU members.

"I do not fear a domino effect," he said. "Europe will lose status and significance in the world because of Britain's step. The long-term economic effects will also be felt for some time."
