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.

The charity was founded in January 2010 in response to the Haiti earthquake, in an effort to accelerate relief efforts following natural disasters.
