Theresa May to resign on June 7

Theresa May has announced she will resign as leader of the Conservative Part on June 7.

In an emotional statement on Friday, Mrs May said that being Prime Minister had been the "honour of my life". She said it was with "deep regret" that she had been unable to deliver Brexit.

The statement came after Mrs May met with the chairman of Tory backbenchers to decide on her exit date.

Theresa May will remain Prime Minister while a Conservative leadership contest takes place, a process which will start after 7 June.
