Prime Minister David Cameron has chosen to step down from his position after the United Kingdom voted in the EU Referendum to leave the EU.

Outside Downing Street, Cameron was joined by his wife and said it wasn't "right" for him to be "the captain" which will "steer the country" in its new direction.

He added: "I love this country and will do everything I can to serve it.

"The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered."

Cameron said he'll be staying on as Prime Minister whilst a new Tory leader is chosen, but the public should expect him to have stepped down by the time of the Conservative Party Conference in October.

He also admitted he wouldn't personally be invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty which will start the Brexit process, leaving that to his successor.

A Tory leadership election is expected to begin within the next few weeks.
