Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has resigned after suffering a heavy defeat in a referendum over his plan to reform the constitution.

In a late-night news conference, he said he took responsibility for the outcome. He said the No camp must now make clear proposals.

Reports state that 42 to 46% voted to back reform, compared with 54 to 58% voting No.

The Prime Minister said he would tell a Cabinet meeting this afternoon that he is resigning, and then tender his resignation to the Italian president after 2 and-a-half years in office.
