Britain's top share index fell to a two-week low Thursday as pressure from a firmer pound hit the index's dollar-earning constituents, though utilities were a relative bright spot. The FTSE 100 index was down 0.6 percent at 7,516.03 at its close, extending the previous session's losses, while mid caps were also down 0.2 percent. Among individual stocks, utilities were among top gainers on the FTSE index, with shares in United Utilities and Severn Trent up 1.3 percent and 0.5 percent respectively.
