A teenager has been charged with reckless conduct after a car burst into flames at a tribute to the late film star Paul Walker.

A group of car enthusiasts congregated at Aberdeen's Links Road Retail Park on Saturday 14 after the death of the actor in a crash in California on November 30.

The meeting was said to have been organised by car enthusiast group Track and Street Grampian.

A car fire at the meeting was reported shortly after 10pm.

A spokesman for the police service said: "The fire, which occurred during a gathering of car enthusiasts, was quickly extinguished by a unit from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

"A 19-year-old male has been charged with reckless conduct in respect of the incident and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal."

Bystanders said the fire began "after revving the engine for 20 minutes in tribute".

Mr Walker, best known as Brian O'Conner in The Fast and the Furious film series, was killed along with former professional racing driver Roger Rodas when the Porsche sports car they were travelling in hit a lamppost and burst into flames.

Mr Walker's ashes were buried on Sunday in a private ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.
