 (Adds closing prices)

    MILAN, June 13 (Reuters) - The FTSE 100 ended flat on
Wednesday as a weaker pound supported export-oriented shares,
helping offset a fall in Just Eat on fresh competition worries
and weaker energy stocks.
    The index  .FTSE  fluctuated within a tight range as
investors waited for a string of central bank decisions this
week, starting with the U.S. Federal Reserve later in the day.
    Just Eat  JE.L  fell 4.7 percent, leading fallers on the
FTSE, after Deliveroo stepped up competition against its rival,
saying it would allow restaurants to use their own riders for
orders placed through its app.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N1TE47J
    "It's a model used by Just Eat, and means Deliveroo’s army
of mopeds is potentially set to mount a significant challenge to
the FTSE 100 firm’s grip on the food delivery sector," said
Connor Campbell, analyst at Spreadex.
    Domino's Pizza  DOM.L  was also lower, down 2.7 percent.
    The energy sector had the biggest negative pull, taking 12
points off the FTSE.
    Oil majors Royal Dutch Shell  RDSa.L  and BP  BP.L  fell 1.1
and 0.9 percent respectively but ended off their day's low as
oil prices turned higher after U.S. government data showed a
bigger weekly draw than expected on domestic crude inventories.
    Heavyweight miner Glencore  GLEN.L  rose 3.7 percent after
its Congo unit reach a settlement to dissolve a copper and
cobalt joint venture.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N1TE1YC
    Big international firms such as Diageo  DGE.L , BAT  BATS.L 
and Shire  SHP.L  rose between 0.6 and 1.1 percent, extending
gains as sterling fell to a one-week after data that failed to
bolster chances of an interest rate increase in August. 
    Rate-sensitive banks were also broadly lower with Royal Bank
of Scotland  RBS.L  and Lloyds  LLOY.L  down 1.4 and 0.5 percent
    Elsewhere, Dixons Carphone  DC.L  shares fell 2.8 percent
after the company announced a data breach in which 1.2 million
records of non-financial personal information had been accessed.
     British small-cap Connect Group  CNCTC.L  fell 44 percent
after the logistics firm warned full-year profits and dividends
would be "materially" lower than expected, and CEO Mark Cashmore
stepped down.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N1TF2VJ
