(Bloomberg) -- European equities tumbled on Thursday, with the Stoxx Europe 600 ending 3.1% lower, its worst session since the sell-off of June 27, 2016 in the wake of the Brexit vote, as investors fled stocks worldwide amid economic and trade concerns.

The Stoxx 600 has fallen to a level not seen since December 2016, with all sectors deeply in the red on Thursday, while Germany’s DAX slipped into bear market.
