Rolls-Royce shares dropped further on Monday as investors fretted about the impact of problems with Rolls-Royce engines on Airbus A380s.

Rolls-Royce shares dropped 1.4% by mid-morning UK time, BBC News said. The shares have declined by about 10% since the incident, wiping more than 1.5 billion pounds ($2.4 billion) off the company's market value.
