British prime minister Theresa May is not considering resigning, Sky news reported on Thursday, citing her Downing Street office.

‘Downing Street: Resignation is not an issue,’ Sky said on its screen.

A spokesman for PM May did not comment on the report. A spokesman for the Conservative Party did not comment.
