Here is some more on Nigel Farage's speech to supporters earlier:

“The Eurosceptic genie is out of the bottle.” They were the words of Nigel Farage, as he didn’t “concede” defeat in the EU referendum, but said that, whatever happens, the immigration question that has been so inflamed in the last few weeks, “is not going away.” “I don’t know what will happen”, he said, “but it could be that the reopening of the registration deadline, and the extra two million voters, will be what cost us. I hope I’m wrong, I hope I’m made a fool of.”

Pro-Brexit Tories, including Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, have signed a letter backing David Cameron to remain as Prime Minister after the referendum.

The letter, signed by 84 MPs, said: "We believe whatever the British people decide you have both a mandate and a duty to continue leading the nation implementing our policies."

Signatories included all of the Cabinet-level ministers who broke ranks to join Vote Leave: Mr Gove, Chris Grayling, John Whittingdale, Theresa Villiers and Priti Patel.

The pro-Brexit former Cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith said he was not asked to sign the letter, but insisted Mr Cameron should stay on as PM.

He told BBC News: "Actually I wasn't asked to sign the letter but I've been very public all along to say that I think he has a duty to stay.

"I'm not in government any longer so I assume that's why I wasn't asked - I'm just a backbencher."
