Startling claims that the speed of light has been broken for a second time have been rejected by a group of scientists.
Physicists from Cern, the Swiss home of the Large Hadron Collider, announced last week that for the second time in a matter of months they had proved Albert Einstein’s theories wrong.
If true, the findings would revolutionise the world of science and change more than a century of thinking on modern physics.
However, scientists studying the same neutrino particles that their colleagues say appear to have travelled faster than light have this weekend rejected their claims,¬†saying tests had shown it must be wrong.
