"This is going to be the biggest change for a generation," the minister in charge of exiting the European Union, David Davis, has said, before calling for those who voted on either side to now come together.

Speaking at the Conservative Party conference, Davis said the credit for leaving the EU goes to his party.

"It will be this government - a Conservative government led by Theresa May - that will lead the United Kingdom out of the European Union and into a brighter and better future."

He also spoke of Margaret Thatcher, comparing Theresa May to the former prime minister. "Aren't we lucky our female leaders are there when we need them," Davis said.

He added that this is a "turning point in our nation's story," while saying "doommongers" who say this will be bad for Britain will be proven wrong.
