Commuters heading into the City of London walk across London Bridge, in front of Tower Bridge, in central London on June 27, 2016Britain's finance minister on Monday sought to calm markets after the country's shock vote to leave the EU, and insisted it would be not rushed into a break-up despite pressure from EU leaders. George Osborne said Britain's economy was "as strong as could be" to deal with the fallout of Thursday's momentous Brexit vote, which has already claimed the scalp of Prime Minister David Cameron and fuelled fears of a break-up of the United Kingdom. "Today I want to reassure the British people, and the global community, that Britain is ready to confront what the future holds for us from a position of strength," he said, minutes before the opening of European stock markets.

Britain's vote to leave the European Union gives the government a clear mandate to impose controls on immigration, a pro-Brexit minister said on Monday, after some leaders of the campaign to leave the bloc said levels might not change after all. Immigration had been a key factor in the build up to the June 23 referendum vote, with the campaign to leave the bloc saying a British exit, or Brexit, would result in lower levels of net migration into Britain. "We've got a very clear mandate from the British public to put in place controls on the flow of people into this country," Chris Grayling told BBC Radio, saying he would be surprised if there was not a significant cut in immigration.
