Brexit: David Cameron to quit after UK votes to leave EUNEGOTIATE its withdrawal?? Is this like a contested divorce, where the lawyers get everything? How soon will the UK stop the flood of incoming Muslims?
It would be for the new prime minister to carry out negotiations with the EU and invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which would give the UK two years to negotiate its withdrawal, he said.
"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."
Bank of England governor Mark Carney said UK banks' "substantial capital and huge liquidity" allowed them to continue to lend to businesses and households.
The Bank of England is ready to provide an extra £250bn of support, he added.
The referendum turnout was 71.8% - with more than 30 million people voting - the highest turnout at a UK-wide vote since 1992.
Mr Farage - who has campaigned for the past 20 years for Britain to leave the EU - told cheering supporters "this will be a victory for ordinary people, for decent people".
This is truly exciting. Which others will follow? Not Greece, of course, they are parasitic on Germany.
