Theresa May resigns
Theresa May resigns over Brexit: What happened?
It's the question that has kept British politics awash with rumours for months - when will Theresa May resign?
Her Brexit plans failed again and again to impress squabbling MPs in parliament, but she soldiered on regardless. Until now.
In an emotional statement outside her office in Downing St, Mrs May finally announced she was stepping down as prime minister.
She will quit as Conservative party leader on 7 June but will stay in office until a successor is found.
Mrs May - who became the UK's second female prime minister in July 2016 - had been under sustained pressure from lawmakers opposed to her Brexit plans.
