A dejected Cameron made it clear he accepted the will of the people to leave the EU
He revealed in an emotional statement outside Downing Street he wanted a new
leader to be in place by this autumn’s Conservative conference.
He said: "I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain that steers our
country to its next destination."
Mr Cameron’s remarks came just minutes after the markets opened with carnage
in the City of London.
More than £100 billion was wiped off the FTSE 100 as the index fell more than 7%,
while the pound also crashed 8% against the US dollar.
Flanked by wife Samantha, the PM said he had informed the Queen of his decision
to remain in place for the short term.
"The British people have voted to leave the European Union and their will must be
respected," said Mr Cameron.
"The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered."
After revealing he would not be staying on, and with his voice breaking he said:
"I love this country and I feel honoured to have served it."

formally begins the EU renegotiation process, so he will not be doing it himself.
The announcement came after a historic decision this morning for a Brexit, with the
electorate quitting the EU by 52% to 48%.
Mr Cameron said he accepted the outcome, which has left the country split in half.
While most of England and Wales chose to Leave the EU, voters in Scotland and
London overwhelmingly backed Remain.
A massive popular uprising against the capital's elites was credited for the extraordinary
result - which defied almost every expert prediction.
Huge swathes of
the North, the East coast, the Midlands
and rural areas across the south,
all backed Out.
The final result saw 17,759,184 Brits vote to leave, while 16,580,508 backed remain.

plunged the financial markets into unprecedented chaos

pound plummeting by almost 10% across the night - a 31 year low,
