British Prime Minister Gordon Brown arrived Tuesday at Buckingham Palace to tender his resignation to Queen Elizabeth II after saying he was stepping down to allow a new government to be formed.

Outside 10 Downing Street, he told journalists he would quit immediately to let Conservative leader, David Cameron, form a government following five days of political deadlock after Thursday's poll failed to produce a clear winner.
