Ferguson protests: Town wakes up to widespread riot damage

The US town of Ferguson has seen rioting and looting after a jury decided not to bring charges over the killing of a black teenager.

Michael Brown was shot by a white police officer, Darren Wilson, on 9 August, sparking protests.

A police chief said violence in the suburb of St Louis, Missouri, was "probably much worse" than on any night since the teenager's death.

As dawn was about to break, ABC reporter Alex Perez described some of the damage the people of Ferguson would be waking up to.
