The UK's main share index has closed down sharply as concern over the impact of turmoil in the US sub-prime lending market continues to haunt investors.
While US shares were falling still further in early Wall Street trading, London's FTSE 100 ended the day down 4.1% or 250 points at 5,859.
This is the FTSE's biggest one-day percentage fall since March 2003.
The falls came despite the Federal Reserve pumping an extra $17bn (£8.6bn) into the US banking system.
