European shares fell on Wednesday, with British education publisher Pearson slumping after warning on its earnings and top Swedish banks dropping after missing third-quarter earnings expectations.
The pan-European FTS Euro first 300 index was down 0.4 percent at 1,426.66 points by 0714 GMT after falling 0.5 percent in the previous session.
Pearson shares were down nearly 10 percent after the company said it expected earnings to be at the bottom end of its range due to lower enrolments at some colleges in the United States and lower school text book purchases in some parts of South Africa.
