Local reaction: Boris Johnson resigns as Prime Minister

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has just announced his resignation as Conservative leader outside Number 10 Downing Street.

The news was dramatically broken on Radio 4 on Thursday morning when the BBC’s Political Editor Chris Mason received a call from Downing Street that Mr Johnson would be resigning.

Boris Johnson has agreed to step down, but wants to stay on as Prime Minister until a new Tory leader is elected. Downing Street has issued a statement saying: ‘The prime minister will make a statement to the country today.’

The Mid-Devon dvertiser has asked local polticians for their reaction to the news.
