Sheffield named as one of UK's most spiritual cities.

1,440 Brummies per month search for a combination of online psychics, tarot readings and more.

Glasgow took second and third spots, while Sheffield was named the UK’s eighth most spiritual place.

It said there are 530 monthly Google searches for psychics in the city.

The study was carried out by psychicworld and search volumes were obtained from Google Adwords.

Search terms inputted per city include: psychic, online psychic, fortune teller, tarot reading, spiritual healer, clairvoyant, aura reading, crystal ball gazing/reading. All terms were then combined to achieve totals per city.

The city has become a target for a number of psychic and paranormal investigators after the Stocksbridge Bypass was named as one of the most haunted and scariest roads in Britain.

The A616, which has been the scene of a number of strange sighting over the decades, is considered one of the country's most terrifying drives.

Completed in 1989, the stories of a paranormal nature began during the building of the road when two security guards claimed they saw a group of children dancing beneath a pylon in the early hours.
