By Ninian Carter

Liz Truss has quit as UK prime minister after just 45 days in office.

She says her successor will be elected in a Tory leadership contest, likely to be completed by October 28.

Truss is the shortest-serving prime minister in British history, a title previously claimed by George Canning, who died after 5 months in office in 1827.
