A memorial has been held for the actor Paul Walker, who died last weekend age 40 with co-stars from the Fast and Furious movies as well as the actor's family gathering at the spot where his car crashed on Saturday leading to his death.

Walker in a Los Angeles car crash after a Porsche driven by his friend Roger Rodas hit a lamp  post and burst into flames. Mr Rodas, who was Walker's financial adviser as well as owning a custom car shop with the actor, also died in the crash.

Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Vin Diesel, Christopher Bridges aka Ludacris were seen gathering last night at the makeshift memorial where fans have been leaving tributes to the actor since the sad news was confirmed, according to Splash News.

Addressing the crowd who have created a memorial to the star, Diesel said: "The love that you’ve shown Paul…it’s going to stay with me forever. "I just want to say thank you for coming down here and showing the angel in heaven how much you appreciate him."

The private memorial comes as Universal Pictures have confirmed a donation will be made to the star's charity, Reach Out WorldWide, from the proceeds of the sale of the home entertainment release of Fast & Furious 6 when it's released on December 10.
