Prime Minister David Cameron’s resignation is a direct result of the UK electorate’s decision to leave the EU, according to South Holland and the Deepings MP John Hayes.

Mr Cameron’s decision to quit both as Prime Minister and Conservative Party leader, to take effect in October, came despite a letter from Mr Hayes and 83 other Tory MPs in favour of leaving the EU which emerged yesterday before the result became clear.

Mr Hayes said: “I’m disappointed to hear that the Prime Minister is going to step dowm as I’m a great admirer of his.

“Maybe if the referendum campaign had been different or if the result had gone differently, he would have stayed on.

“But the Prime Minister committed himeself to a certain outcome and felt that, out of integrity, he couldn’t carry on.”
