Harry Potter fans have left tributes to Alan Rickman at Platform 9¾, an attraction devoted to the films at King's Cross Station.

Flowers and photographs of Professor Severus Snape, Rickman's character in the franchise, were left on the platform in the hours after the 69-year-old's death from cancer was confirmed.

The touching tributes come after Potter fans at Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida, raised their wands in memory of the late star.
