THE Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that he will be stepping down.
The announcement came hours after the UK voted to leave the European Union in a decision which has shocked the political and financial worlds.
The leader of the Conservative party, who backed the unsuccessful Remain campaign, said that Britain required ‘fresh leadership’ in light of the referendum outcome.
Speaking outside No.10 Downing Street, Mr Cameron said: “I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.”
MP for Maidenhead and current Home Secretary Theresa May has been tipped to take over, along with Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and George Osbourne.
