Theresa May officially becomes UK Prime Minister

Conservative MP Theresa May has been appointed as Britain's second woman Prime Minister.

Ms May, 59, was invited to form a government by Queen Elizabeth II in a private audience at Buckingham Palace.

The 12th PM during the Queen's reign, Ms May suceeds David Cameron, who tendered his resignation to the monarch half an hour earlier.

She arrived at the palace by ministerial car with her husband Philip May, having set off from the House of Commons after Mr Cameron was officially accepted by the Queen.
