'The fact that Wales was right in the middle of it makes me very proud'

Dr Lyn Evans has spoken of his pride that Wales was involved in the discovery of what's believed to be the Higgs Boson particle.

Dr Evans from Aberdare was the project leader for research into Higgs Boson, which gives matter mass and and holds the physical fabric of the universe together.
