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.
