Theresa May to resign as 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 for the UK, the BBC reported on Friday.
In an emotional statement in Downing Street 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".
