Conservative MP and 'Leave' campaigner Andrea Leadsom has said Prime Minister David Cameron "did an amazing thing" by giving the country a referendum on EU membership.
Speaking to ITV News, Ms Leadsom added that Mr Cameron has to stay on as Prime Minister no matter what the result.
She is one of over 80 Conservative MPs who have signed a letter calling on Mr Cameron to remain as Prime Minister.
He (David Cameron) not only called the referendum but also said to his ministers, 'don't listen to anyone, go with what you believe in' and that's an extremely brave thing to do.
He encouraged us to campaign with all our hearts for what we believe in and I think we do owe him a lot for that.
So I think now, whatever the result, we absolutely need too listen to the people and do exactly as the people tell us and just get on with it.
A petition calling for a second EU referendum is proving so popular that the website has crashed.
People are invited to share alleged racism or xenophobia stories after Brexit vote to highlight "need for a plan to tackle" social effects.
