1.29pm: The stock market sell-off has accelerated in the last hour, with the FTSE 100 now down by 101 points at 5670 (a fall of 1.7%), and the Amsterdam index down 8.32 points at 300.88 (down 2.7%).
The euro is also being hit by the triple whammy of the Dutch political crisis, bad economic data (see 9.59am), and the French presidential election results (see 9.17am). It just hit a new 20-month low against the pound of 81.575p.
