Eggheads operating the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have been enjoying a great deal of success with their experiments over recent weeks.

And they have local electrician Dave Coaxial to thank for their celebrations.

The collider, which is operated by the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), is a huge circular tunnel between France and Switzerland near Geneva.

Over recent weeks, boffins opeating the LHC have succeeded in creating conditions similar to those which existed just seconds after the 'Big Bang.'

They also claim to have captured anti-matter atoms.

But they would have been nowhere without Dave.

He told us: "Me and the missus - Karen - well, we were having a city break in Geneva and were in this bar having a drink one night when we got talking to this guy.

"He told us he worked at this LHC thing, but they were having problems - it wasn't working. I told him I was a sparky and asked him he wanted me to have a look at it for them.

"Well he said that would be great. So he took me there the next day and I gave the systems a once-over and saw the problem almost at once - they'd blown a 13-amp fuse in one of the computers.

"I normally charge £250 just for the call out, but when I told the guys they could have this one for free they bought Karen and me lunch."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
