    Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned.

    He'll stay in the post for the coming weeks and months but would like a new leader take over in time for the Conservative party conference in the Autumn.

    He said he would leave it to his successor to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which kicks off the two-year process of negotiating a new trade relationship with the UK's former partners.

    Quote Message: I will do everything I can as Prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months, but I don't think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination." from David Cameron Prime Minister
