Grown-ups fear the dark
NEARLY two-thirds of adults are still scared of the dark, a poll has found.
The study revealed 64 per cent hate putting the lights out at bedtime, while 36 per cent regularly get a feeling someone, or something, is in the room with them.
Some 20 per cent of the 2000 adults polled by Bensons for Beds checked under the bed for monsters and closed wardrobe doors before sleeping.
And 20 per cent made partners go with them if they had to visit the toilet in the night.
