Mr Cameron’s decision to quit both as Prime Minister and Conservative Party leader, to take effect in October, came despite a letter from Mr Hayes and 83 other Tory MPs in favour of leaving the EU which emerged yesterday before the result became clear.

Mr Hayes said: “I’m disappointed to hear that the Prime Minister is going to step dowm as I’m a great admirer of his.

“Maybe if the referendum campaign had been different or if the result had gone differently, he would have stayed on.
