Sept 8 (Reuters) - Frankfurt shares edged higher on Tuesday as other European markets dipped, with data showing German exports rose in July offsetting concerns that the UK is in danger of leaving the European Union without a trade agreement.

The pan-European STOXX 600 fell 0.1% at 0711 GMT, with more defensive sector indexes including food and beverages .SX3P , healthcare .SXDP and real estate .SX86P making gains in early trading.
