U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron spoke for the first time since Thursday's Brexit vote at the House of Commons on Monday and stressed that despite the vote, Britain and Europe must still look out for one another.

FOX's Simon Owen reports from London:

David Cameron returning to Parliament for the first time since Thursday's bombshell vote, a result that cost him his job:

(Cameron) "It was not the result I wanted, nor the outcome that I believe it best for the country I love."

But he says the decision must be accepted. And as for the future:

(Cameron) "Britain is leaving the European Union, but we must not turn our back on Europe or on the rest of the world."

Cameron also condemning an apparent spike in xenophobic abuse against migrants. A series of incidents reported in the days since the referendum.
