A petition calling for a second referendum on UK’s membership of the EU has gained more than one million signatures following the vote to leave.
The petition will be considered by Parliament as it has passed the required 100,000 threshold.
The UK voted to leave the EU by 52% to 48% in Thursday’s referendum but the majority of voters in London, Scotland and Northern Ireland backed Remain.
David Cameron has previously said there would be no second referendum.
On Friday he said he would stand down as prime minister by October following the leave result.
