Ghosts spotted by 11 million Brits says Hatfield scientist

MORE than 11 million of us claim to have spotted a ghost - and that’s not after a few pints or indeed spirits!

The new research was released by University of Hertfordshire scientist professor Richard Wiseman, as part of his new book Paranormailty, which reveals 25 per cent of Brit adults claim to have seen a ghoul.

This is the highest figure on record, with previous surveys showing that in the 1950s just seven per cent of the population reported having seen a ghost.
