Two of the biggest shareholders in BG Group have sold nearly £300 million of shares in recent weeks, in a sign of rising unease over its proposed £36 billion takeover by Royal Dutch Shell.

Axa Investment Management has sold 18.4 million BG Group shares worth £168 million, cutting its stake by nearly two thirds since October. Wellington Management, an American hedge fund, has sold 11.82 million shares, worth more than £108 million and a third of its holding, since September 30.
