Uncertainty creeping in yet again…surprised?

European shares fell to fresh session lows on Tuesday, as persistent worries over the global economic slowdown and euro zone debt crisis weighed on sentiment.

The FTSEurofirst 300 index was down 0.8 percent at 1,087.45 points by 1225 GMT, having at one stage fallen as much as 0.9 percent to an intraday low of 1,086.31 points.
