After the results of the European Union referendum broke overnight, the Prime Minister David Cameron has announced he will resign.

In a statement outside of 10 Downing Street with his wife Samantha Cameron standing behind him, the Prime Minister announced that he will remain in his post for three months. This takes his leadership up to the Conservative autumn conference in October and throughout negotiations with the EU.

The Prime Minister said he would “attempt to steady the ship” over the coming months while speculation will of course be on who his replacement will be. Many believe that former London Mayor Boris Johnson will replace Mr Cameron, while Justice Secretary Michael Gove is tipped to become Chancellor.

Towards the end of his statement, Mr Cameron’s voice did wobble and it was the first sign of physical emotion from him after six years in the job.
