British PM to discuss UK referendum result in Brussels for the first time, amid political and economic uncertainty.

Prime Minister David Cameron is heading to Brussels to meet with EU leaders for the first time since Britain voted to leave the bloc.

He is expected on Tuesday to discuss the vote at an EU summit, while the other 27 leaders will gather for the first time without him on Wednesday morning to plan their next moves.

Cameron will first sit down with EU President Donald Tusk, before the European Council meets later in the day. Later, the British prime minister will "explain the situation" to his fellow leaders over a dinner, according to an invitation letter from Tusk.

The EU leaders are likely to stress a willingness to negotiate, but only after London binds itself to a tight two-year exit timetable.

The leaders of France, Germany and Italy met in Berlin on Monday and said Europe needed to respond to its people's concerns by setting clear goals to improve security, the economy and prospects for young people.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has appeared to take a softer line on Britain's decision than some European leaders, said she had "neither a brake nor an accelerator" to control events, adding: "We just don't want an impasse."
