Nigel Farage has announced he will stand down as the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), saying "I've done my bit" to get Britain out of the European Union. He said UKIP was "in a good position" following the EU referendum and that his political ambition had been achieved.
"I came into this struggle from business because I wanted us to be a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician," Farage told CNN.
"Thank you to all my supporters in @UKIP and beyond. Delighted with the result we fought for so long to achieve. #BrexitBritain," he tweeted.
