* FTSE 100 down 0.6%, FTSE 250 off 0.3%

Jan 16 (Reuters) - London's blue-chip FTSE 100 index hit a one-month low on Tuesday, hurt by risk-off moves in Asia and Europe as hawkish remarks from central bankers outweighed support from better-than-expected UK wages data.

The FTSE 100 dropped 0.6% by 0812 GMT to its lowest level since Dec. 14, 2023. The domestically-focussed FTSE 250 index dipped 0.3%.

Asian and broader European equities were under selling pressure after European Central Bank officials warned on Monday it was too early to discuss interest rate cuts.

That countered optimism from data that showed British wages grew at the slowest pace in almost a year, adding to signs of a gradual cooling of the inflationary pressure in the labour market that has worried the Bank of England.
