Scientists in a tiny lab at the bottom of Britain's deepest mine could beat the 5bn "Big Bang" project to crack one of the Universe's great mysteries.

The team at Boulby on the edge of the North York Moors hope to detect dark matter - hypothetical particles thought to make up much of the Universe.

They are competing against the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva.
