Exeter is one of the most haunted cities in the UK, according to new 'Ghost Hunter' report
Exeter is one of the most haunted cities in the UK, a new study has claimed.
The City has had a total of 50 ghost, vampire, werewolf and other supernatural 'sightings' over the last 25 years - an average of two a year – making it the 10th most haunted place in Britain.
The news has been announced by the The Paranormal Witness Report, a study led by author and ghost hunter Christian Jensen Romer, who has worked in the paranormal investigation field since 1987.
He analysed the 'sightings' in the UK over the last quarter century using archives, websites, clippings and his own reports.
Edinburgh and Glasgow are the spookiest cities in the UK, according to the research by the ‘ghost hunter’.
There have been 375 paranormal sightings in Edinburgh in the last 25 years and 350 in Glasgow.
The report was commissioned by TV channel Really to mark the UK premiere of the new series of Paranormal Witness, which recounts and recreates real-life unexplained experiences.
The study also found that women have been more likely to experience paranormal activity.
Mr Jensen Romer said: “The Paranormal Witness Report for Really shows that we are a nation rich in spooky sightings and strange phenomena, and these things can happen to any of us at any time.
“Over the last 25 years, women appear to have been more susceptible to these experiences than men and some cities seem to have been reporting far more of their share.”
Nottingham was the third spookiest city in the UK with 300 reported paranormal sightings in the last 25 years, followed by Derby with 180 and Swansea with 155.
The top place for ‘spotting ghosts’ was bedrooms, with more than a third (36%) seen there, followed by the living room where a fifth (20%) of paranormal activity was experienced, then the back garden (10%) and the bathroom (5%).
The findings also suggest that supernatural sightings are equally divided between daylight and night-time hours, though they have been reported to happen more frequently between the hours of 5pm and 6pm and 9pm and 10pm.http://www.exeterexpressandecho.co.uk/Exeter-haunted-cities-UK-according-new-Ghost/story-20016818-detail/story.html
