South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon says the decision to leave the European Union is an “excellent result for the British people.”

Following yesterday’s referendum, 51.9 per cent decided Britain would be better off leaving the EU.

Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron has also announced he will step down by the autumn.

Mr Bacon, in a statement released this morning, said: “This is an excellent result for the British people.

“We can now forge a new relationship with our friends and neighbours in Europe based on co-operation and free trade, not on our participation in an evolving superstate which most people do not want.

“We will now see Parliament’s restoration as our supreme law-making body.

“We will also regain our own seat at the table of the World Trade Organisation, which means that we can start to negotiate deals ourselves without having to wait in the slow lane with Brussels holding things up.”
