Tears, joy and a resignation as UK votes for Brexit

Britain votes to leave the EU, forcing Prime Minister David Cameron to resign, dealing a blow to the European project.

Britain has voted to leave the European Union, forcing the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron and dealing the biggest blow to the European project of greater unity since World War II.

A leave vote means the future of Britain's financial services industry may now be hanging in the balance.

Quitting the EU could cost Britain access to the EU's trade barrier-free single market and means it must seek new trade accords with countries around the world.

The United Kingdom itself could break apart, with politicians in Scotland - where nearly two-thirds of voters wanted to stay in the EU - calling for a new vote on independence.
