Titan - Britain's largest cave

A cave believed to be the biggest in Britain has been unearthed in the Peak District in Derbyshire.

Underground explorers in Derbyshire have discovered what is thought to be Britain's biggest cave.

Titan is thought to be almost 460ft (140m) deep, as high as the London Eye, sculpted out of limestone by rain water over millions of years and is big enough to house St Paul's cathedral several times over.

Local potholer and underground explorer Dave Nixon led the team that discovered it, near Castleton.
