David Cameron resigns as British Prime Minister

David Cameron has resigned as British 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".

He 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 within three months.
