    What Happens When You Use Pokemon Go In Downing Street

    Yes, we actually did this.

    Theresa May officially became prime minister on Wednesday afternoon, following the departure of David Cameron from Downing Street. Luckily BuzzFeed News was on hand to capture the entire event through the medium of Pokémon Go.

    Cameron's car calmly drove straight through the Pokémon without stopping.

    Inside Downing Street hundreds of political journalists stood in a metal pen opposite the famous black door, musing on the momentous occasion while waiting for Cameron's formal resignation.

    Once Cameron had officially quit, Theresa May was formally appointed as prime minister by the Queen. She immediately drove to Downing Street.

    In her first speech as prime minister May vowed to be a "One Nation" leader who looked after "ordinary working-class families".
