Paul Walker - Paul Walker Tops U.k. Google Searches In 2013

Paul Walker has topped the 2013 Google U.K. searches survey, just weeks after his death became headline news.

The Fast & Furious star was killed when the sports car he was travelling in crashed into a tree and exploded on 30 November (13).

Fans rushed to the web to find out about the tragic story and pushed him to the top of Google's annual end-of-year Zeitgeist countdown.

The release of the latest Apple iPhone was the second most-searched topic ahead of the birth of British royal baby Prince George in July (13) in third place. The death of another celebrity - Glee star Cory Monteith, who died of an overdose in July (13) - was fourth in the countdown.

The passing of global figures made up the majority of the top 10 searches, with the deaths of Nelson Mandela earlier this month (Dec13) and former U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in April (13) coming in at six and nine.

Claudine Beaumont from Google U.K. says, "Our annual Zeitgeist survey provides a fascinating snapshot of our interests and obsessions for the year.

"Celebrities always get a lot of interest and the passing of well-known figures makes people want to learn more about them."
