‘Ghosts exist’, say 1 in 3 British People !
One in four British people (39%) believe that a house can be haunted by some kind of supernatural being, and almost as many (34%) think that ghosts actually exist.
Women have a significantly higher propensity to believe in the supernatural, with them being 10% more likely than men to believe in ghosts, 17% more likely to believe in life after death and 15% more likely to think houses can be haunted.
Most surprisingly, 9% of British people really believe they have communicated with the dead, with 5% saying they have done so more than once.
When confronted with a ghost men are twice as likely as women to scream and run away while other initial responses include crying, hiding and fainting !
