LONDON -- Here's one to ponder on Halloween. A new survey said more people in Britain believe in ghosts than believe in God.
A poll of more than 2,000 people said 68 percent believe in ghosts and spirits, while 55 percent said they believe in the existence of God.
Of the ghost believers, 12 percent claim to have seen an apparition. Seventy-six percent say reality television shows and films about the supernatural are part of the reason they're convinced ghosts are real.
The poll was conducted by retailer Choice U.K.. It also finds that about 26 percent believe in UFOs and 19 percent believe in re-incarnation. But just 4 percent think the Loch Ness monster is more than a myth.
