Harry Potter fans have left a magical tribute to Alan Rickman, who died yesterday aged 69.
Flowers have been spread across Platform 9 and 3/4, with messages to the actor who played professor Severus Snape in the series.
The memorial, at London King's Cross train station, surrounds the symbolic wall that the characters have to run through in order to journey to Hogwarts.
Fans have been sharing pictures of the tribute:

There are no words to express how shocked and devastated I am to hear of Alan Rickman's death. He was a magnificent actor & a wonderful man.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 14, 2016
My thoughts are with Rima and the rest of Alan's family. We have all lost a great talent. They have lost part of their hearts.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 14, 2016

Matthew Lewis who played the character Neville Longbottom also shared his tribute:
I was at Leavesden Studios today when I heard the news. As I walked through the canteen I thought of Alan queuing up for his lunch with us mere mortals. I recalled the trailer in which he offered me some of the greatest advice I ever received about this mad profession we shared. Being back in those corridors made me remember a lot of things and I will treasure those memories all my life. He inspired my career more than he ever knew and I'll miss him.
Rickman's death was confirmed on Thursday afternoon, with his family revealing that he had been suffering from cancer.
They said in a statement: "The actor and director Alan Rickman has died from cancer at the age of 69. He was surrounded by family and friends."Suggest a correction
