A shop owner whose business was vandalized in riot-hit Ferguson admits she is “overwhelmed” after receiving a flood of donations.

Natalie DuBose was pictured weeping outside her bakery shop as violence erupted in the Missouri city this week.

Kind-hearted strangers have donated more than $215,000 (£135,000) in just 24 hours to help the mother-of-two.

The windows of her business, Natalie’s Cake‘s & More, were smashed and equipment damaged by looters.

Ms DuBose initially hoped to raise $20,000 (13,000) through her #GoFundMe campaign to help pay for repairs to her shop, which only opened in June.
