Paul Walker laid to rest

The Fast and Furious star, who passed away in a tragic car crash on 30 November, was cremated on Thursday and his remains were interred at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills.

The actor's movie co-stars, including Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and Michelle Rodriguez, were also present to honour Walker's life, and following the service, Gibson took to Instagram to pay a touching tribute to his late pal.

He wrote: "Today In a room full of your loved ones I wish today was your wedding instead. God has a better plan even beyond ALL of our own understandings. For selfish reasons we all wanted you to stay, another laugh, another take, another talk, another moment. I guess you can't get all you ask for in life. But our hearts are FULL from all the moments we DID have, 13 years of laughter and grace, humility and love."

Rodriguez also took to to share her thoughts, writing: "I said goodbye to a great man today, a man I never got to show just how much I love his spirit and his golden heart, 'stay golden pony boy'... I hope you get my tweet in heaven, ps your (sic) right; 'stop talking just do it already' Love you Paul, your departure is fuel to my fire, well (sic) meet again, enjoy that light."

Autopsy results revealed the actor died as a result of traumatic and thermal injuries sustained when the Porsche his business partner Roger Rodas was driving crashed and burst into flames. Rodas also perished in the accident.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is still ongoing.
