US shoppers hunt for bargains on Black Friday

Millions of Americans have been heading to the shops on Black Friday, a crucial event for US retailers.
Many stores opened their doors overnight, hoping to entice customers with cut-price bargains.
Black Friday - the day after the Thanksgiving public holiday - is traditionally the start of the Christmas shopping season.
Consumers are spending in an uncertain environment as fears about the health of the US economy persist.
Thousands of people queued late on Thursday evening in the hope of being the first to find a bargain, with many shops offering deep discounts on clothing, electronic goods and toys.
Several chains opened even earlier than the typical midnight start. Children's retailer Toys R Us threw open its doors at 2200 on Thursday for the first time. Others stayed open after trading on Thanksgiving itself.
