The US police officer who shot dead unarmed teenager Michael Brown has said his conscience is clear over the incident. The St Louis area is braced for further protests after a jury cleared Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting.
Social media websites like Facebook have "a duty of care" to alert authorities when users reveal their intentions to take part in an act of terrorism, the Step-Dad of murdered soldier Lee Rigby has said.
Speaking exclusively to Good Morning Britain, Ian Rigby criticised Facebook for not sharing more information with authorities when it emerged one of Lee's killers, Michael Adebowale, had spoken of his plans to murder a solider in an exchange on the social media site ahead of the attack.
Fusilier Rigby was chased down by Adebowale and his accomplice Michael Adebolajo, before he was stabbed to death on the street in broad daylight on May 22 last year.
Both men were found guilty of murder and received full life sentences, with only Adebowale eligible for parole after 45 years.
Step-Dad Ian spoke after a report into the security failings which contributed to the attack was published. He said it was "a necessary evil" for social media websites to share information with authorities in extreme cases.

Mr Obama added that he did not have any sympathy for people who believe "what happened in Ferguson is an excuse for violence".

The St Louis County Police Department wrote on Twitter following a night of violence in Ferguson:
A similar 'trigger' system to the one currently used by online firms to flag up child sexual exploitation should be used in the fight against terrorism, MPs have recommended.

It comes after an online exchange between one of Fusilier Lee Rigby's killers, Michael Adebowale, and an overseas extremist in which he set out his plan.
