Top 10 places people are most likely to doze off

London, March 26 : In the first nationwide survey of its kind, time-pressed Britons have opened up about their narcolepsy.

Of the 3,000 adults surveyed, some have admitted to feeling so tired they have rested up on the top of a hay bale, on a bouncy castle, during an exam, in a bank and at a football match, the Daily express reported.

According to the poll by mattress manufacturer Octaspring, the most common place for us to drift off is on pubic transport - but thousands also admitted to getting their head down in nightclubs.

Sleep deprived Brits can also be found daydreaming on the toilet, in the bath, at the cinema and, more worryingly, behind the wheel of a car.

"Getting sufficient sleep makes us less prone to infection, improves immunity, helps control body weight and promotes mental and emotional wellbeing," the paper quoted family GP Ian Campbell as saying.

But disordered sleep, such as sleep apnoea, make sufferers excessively tired and prone to falling asleep in inappropriate places, like behind the wheel of the car, he noted

And with the never-ending pressures of everyday life, millions of people are dozing off in the most unlikely of places, like a skip or a coalmine.

Top 10 places people are most likely to fall asleep, according to the survey are:

Public transport Nightclubs Toilet Work Bath Cinema Beach Bathroom floor Afternoon meeting Car

And the top 10 strangest places people have fallen asleep are:

Hay bale Skip Coal mine Brothel Bouncy castle Staircase Exam hall Bank Cemetery Football match.
