Conservative leader David Cameron, 43, has become Britain’s youngest Prime Minister in almost 200 years following Gordon Brown’s resignation after 13 years of Labour rule.

Mr Cameron will now form a coalition Government with the Liberal Democrats, which represents the first such Government in the UK for 70 years.

Announcing his resignation, Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, said it had been “a privilege to serve” and wished Cameron well.

Mr Brown left Downing Street last night for Buckingham Palace with his wife Sarah and sons John and Fraser.

He announced that deputy Harriet Harman was taking over as acting Labour leader until his successor is chosen.

According to close friends, Brown is set to stand down as an MP and leave the politics world and focus on charity work.

Meanwhile, the new Prime Minister has started the task of appointing his first cabinet and said he is committed to dealing with Britain’s “pressing problems” - the deficit, social problems and to “rebuild trust in our political system”.
