Europe: Stocks fall, Carlsberg slumps
[LONDON] European stock markets fell on Wednesday, extending a recent losing streak on the back of persistent worries over China, while drinks group Carlsberg slumped after cutting its outlook.
The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index and the euro zone's blue-chip Euro STOXX 50 index both fell by 0.6 per cent.
Carlsberg was the worst-performer on the FTSEurofirst index, falling 7 per cent after the brewing company cut its profit forecast.
