It’s the highest number of resignations any British government has experienced in 90 years.

MPs from across the Tory Party spent the last 48 hours urging Mr Johnson to call it quits.

Yesterday the PM insisted he would soldier on, but this morning he finally admitted his time is up.

Mr Johnson plans to continue as PM until a new leader of the Tory party is in place for the October conference.

The choice to carry on temporarily or go straight away is up to Mr Johnson.

Conservative leadership elections are automatically triggered when a Tory PM resigns.

But Boris has decided to stay on until his party picks a new leader.

Sir Keir Starmer has threatened to table a vote no confidence in the Commons if the PM clings on.

If a majority of MPs vote no confidence in Boris' government he will be forced to resign to the Queen.

This would then either pave the way for Dominic Raab to take over or a general election.
