UK Prime Minister Theresa May to resign as prime minister

UK prime minister Theresa May has said she will quit as Conservative leader on 7 June, paving the way for a

 

contest to decide a new prime minister.

In an emotional statement in Downing Street Mrs May said she had “done my best” to honour the 2016 EU referendum result.

It would remain a matter of “deep regret” that she had been unable to deliver Brexit, she added.

But a new PM was “in the best interests of the country”.
