(Close): Shares slipped for the second day running with uncertainty around Scotland's independence referendum again raising concerns.

The FTSE 100 was 5.7 points lower at 6,829, with Perth-based energy firm SSE and Royal Dutch Shell, both down 1.4%, among the main fallers.

The pound was just above 1.60 against the dollar after big losses on Monday. It was down on the euro, at 1.25.

Whitbread fell 0.18%, having risen sharply earlier after a trading update.

Supermarket Morrisons rose 3% after analysts at Citi placed a buy note on the stock amid hopes that the chain will preserve its dividend at half-year results on Thursday.

Other risers included Lloyds Banking Group, which recovered some of Monday's referendum-driven weakness to rise by 1.1p to 73.3p.

Some investors were stepping aside until the outcome of the Scotland referendum on 18 September. "We are actually not doing much until the Scotland vote," said Mark Ward, the head of trading at Sanlam Securities. "We are fairly cautious."
