British Prime Minister Liz Truss has resigned.
She said she could not deliver the mandate she was elected.

Speaking outside Downing Street on Thursday, Truss said she had told King Charles she was resigning as leader of the Conservative Party.

In front of dozens of reporters she says she came into office at a time of “great economic and international instability”.

She added: “I recognise… given the situation I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party.”

The resignation came after she met the chairman of the 1922 Committee of backbench MPs as more Tories called for her to quit

Truss’ premiership came under renewed pressure after the home secretary resigned and a chaotic vote on fracking.

There was fury on Wednesday evening around the vote and the methods used to get MPs to vote with the government.
