Shares fall on fears Greece needs new bail-out

European stock markets have fallen on continuing concerns that Greece may require a new financial bail-out deal.

The falls follow comments on Friday by Jean-Claude Juncker, who chairs the group of eurozone finance ministers, that Greece may need a "further adjustment plan".

Meanwhile, credit rating agency Standard & Poor's cut Greece's bond grade further into junk status.
