His resignation comes days after Theresa May secured the cabinet's backing for her Brexit plan despite claims from Brexiteers that it was too "soft".

That has not stopped a growing number of Tory MPs calling for May to face a leadership contest. His deputy Steve Baker reportedly resigned with him.

She said she was "sorry" he was leaving but would "like to thank you warmly for everything you have done.to shape our departure from the EU".

A long-time eurosceptic, Davis was appointed two years ago to head up the newly-created Department for Exiting the European Union after Britain voted to leave the European Union in a historic referendum. He urged May to abandon her plans and take a tougher line with Brussels.

At a summit at Chequers in the English countryside on Friday, all 12 cabinet members agreed to a plan that would follow European Union rules on goods to ensure "frictionless" trade and allow European Union courts to have some oversight on certain subjects.

She is set to tell MPs there have been "robust views" on Brexit among cabinet members and is also expected to announce a replacement for Davis.

Off to Europe: Trump to meet worried NATO heads, then Putin
European Union officials say Trump appears uninterested in solutions, however. Many U.S. troops are there to do more than protect those countries.

Conservative MP Peter Bone said Mr Davis had "done the right thing", adding: "The PM's proposals for a Brexit in name only are not acceptable". It raises the most serious questions about the PM's ideas.

Tory Andrew Bridgen said he could not support the proposals that came out of Chequers, describing them as a breach of the red lines and that he wouldn't support it "even if the European Union were paying us for it".

Labour Party chairman Ian Lavery said: "This is absolute chaos and Theresa May has no authority left".

The plan seeks to keep the United Kingdom and the European Union in a free-trade zone for goods, and commits Britain to maintaining the same rules as the bloc for goods and agricultural products.

'Whether Michel Barnier will be so impressed with May's attempt to cherry-pick what bits of the single market to keep and what to abandon remains to be seen.

Some euroskeptic lawmakers dream of replacing May with a staunch Brexiteer, such as Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who in the past has disagreed publicly with his boss.

Ryan Fox falls agonisingly short at Irish Open
Jorge Campillo (65) was in third place, a shot further back, and defending champion Jon Rahm was in a share of fourth after a 66. The highest of those was host Rory McIlroy, who shot a 71 to finish in the top 30 on -2.

Davis, a sharp operator and a gut-instinct politician, was a Leave campaigner in the referendum.

Davis told UK Prime Minister Theresa May that it is looking "less and less likely" that the government will be able to orchestrate a full departure from the EU.

Davis also served as a reservist in the Special Air Service, the British army's elite special force unit.

"And I think without David Davis there, without his imprimatur, it will be very hard for them to get the support of Conservative MPs and therefore the prime minister would be well advised to reconsider them". When the Conservatives returned to power in 2010, he spent his time on the backbenches campaigning on civil liberties issues.

Lord Adonis, a prominent backer of a second vote, tweeted: "People's Vote to put Brexit out of its misery a big step closer after DD's resignation". He has been a strong pro-Brexit voice in a Cabinet divided between supporters of a clean break with the bloc and those who want to keep close ties.
