Paul Walker's colleagues have released a touching tribute video.

The Fast & Furious team couldn't hide their anguish at the star's tragic death, and their two-minute YouTube clip shows how much he meant to them.

The video features scenes from the action movie franchise, opening with a smiling Walker getting out of a race car from the 2001 original film.

Haunting music accompanies the moving images, with the song Coming Home chosen as the soundtrack.

"Let the rain, wash away, all the pain of yesterday; I know my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes; I'm coming home; I'm coming home," sings Skylar Grey.

Walker, 40, died in a fatal car accident on Saturday, with friend Roger Rodas at the wheel of the Porsche Carrera GT.

It was revealed yesterday by the LA County Coroner's Office that the cause of death has been attributed to trauma and burn injuries sustained in the accident.

On Tuesday night Beyoncé led a tribute to the late actor at her Mrs Carter concert at the LA Staples Center.

Reducing some fans to tears, the singer dedicated two songs to Walker.

Performing a rendition of Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love you and then her own emotionally charged hit single Halo in front of a star-studded audience, she was met with cheers as she said, "I dedicate these songs to Paul Walker."

Fans have flocked to the crash site to pay their respects to the late actor, leaving tokens of their grief on the street.

But the build-up of memorabilia has forced city crews in Santa Clarita to move the items from the street to the sidewalk, in a bid to prevent any accidents.

"The flowers, candles, posters, and other tributes - not to mention all the trash - that have been left at the crash site by fans paying their respects had piled up in the street and created a road hazard," a representative for the city of Santa Clarita told TMZ.

The Walker and Rodas families have been invited to take away anything they'd like to keep.
