LONDON, Aug 19 (Reuters) - European markets fell on Friday putting the STOXX 600 on track to post its biggest weekly loss since July with all major sectors in the red on the day.

The STOXX 600 index fell 0.2 retreating from a 7-week high reached earlier in the week. Volumes remained light.

Vopak, the world’s largest independent storage tank operator, was among the top fallers, down more than 2 percent after it reported first half results.

William Hill, however, rose over 5 percent after Rank Group and 888’s bid for the bookmaker broke down.

Sweden’s Nibe jumped 4.3 percent after reporting a pretax profit just above forecast. (Reporting by Kit Rees, Editing by Vikram Subhedar)
