If you're at university in any of the towns below then you are officially studying at one of the UK's top ten haunted university towns, and therefore we've worked out that you have a significantly higher chance of getting 'got'.
If you study at Derby, it's a miracle that you haven't already been 'got', but they're certainly coming to 'get' you very soon.
The study was conducted by Lionel Fanthorpe, one of the UK's leading authorities on the unexplained. He explains that Derby may have a high hauntings per person rating because of its multitude of spooky limestone caverns, caves and labyrinths - the energy from bygone events possibly being able to latch on to this stone and linger for centuries, according to Fanthorpe.
York has a high number of reports for mischievous poltergeists and a werewolf. Exeter, a number of floating female phantoms, including a ghostly nun who floats along the south wall of the nave in Exeter's cathedral.
