A new survey has found that us Brits are a nation of scaredy-cats as the major of us have phobias which stop us from sleeping.

Around half of adults are scared of the dark, a fifth of us are freaked out by confined spaces and sudden noises spook a third of people.

The survey, for theme park Thorpe Park, also revealed that 38% of people believe in ghosts with a quarter of us believing in UFOs.

Many people who have phobias said that they were unable to sleep properly with others saying that their worries stopped them from going to work.
