LONDON, June 9 (Reuters) - European stocks fell for the sixth consecutive session on Tuesday, led lower by Spain's Amadeus and tracking a fall on the U.S. equity market as investors speculated that the Federal Reserve may raise rates as soon as September.

The FTSEurofirst 300 was down 0.3 percent at 1,524.64 points by 0813 GMT after hitting a one-month low in early trade.

It tracked Wall Street, where the Dow Jones dropped into negative territory for the year on Monday.

Investors have grown more nervous about the timing of the Fed's first rate hike in nearly a decade following stronger-than-expected May jobs data released last week.
