* FTSE 100 down 0.2%, FTSE 250 adds 0.1%

Sept 14 (Reuters) - London's FTSE 100 edged lower on Tuesday, dragged by heavyweight metals and banking stocks, while JD Sports Fashion jumped to the top of the index after reporting strong earnings.

The blue-chip index fell 0.2%, with miners

and banking stocks dropping 1% each.

Miners Rio Tinto , Anglo American , and BHP Group were also under pressure after Barclays cut its price targets on the stocks.

The domestically focused mid-cap FTSE 250 index traded 0.1% higher as official figures showed British employers added record a 241,000 staff to their payrolls last month, taking the total number of payrolled employees to pre-pandemic levels.

JD Sports Fashion gained 7.2% after Britain's largest sportswear retailer reported record earnings for the first half on robust demand for sneakers and sportswear.

Portmeirion added 4% as the homewares retailer plans to resume dividend payouts this year after reporting record revenue.
