Ninety six per cent of people admit they live on 'autopilot' and 'yes' mode.

According to research by high street giant Marks & Spencer, humans make 250,000 'autopilot' decisions in their lifetime and many of these are making them unhappy.

According to the findings, we say 'yes' four times a day when we wish we hadn't and almost half of adults (47 per cent) admit this is because they don't want to let people down and over a third (37 per cent) believe it's simply easier to say 'yes' than 'no' to others.

Some of the top things we say yes to are working late, going to a social event we know we won't go to, visiting people we don't get on with and giving into kids for an easy life.

What's more, over two fifths of adults (44 per cent) have forgotten something while on autopilot including birthdays, paying an important bill, locking the front door and even picking the children up from school.

A man charged with murdering his girlfriend says she choked to death on his penis.

Richard Henry Patterson, 65, is accused of strangling Francisca Marguinez in Margate, Florida, in 2015 but has insisted that she died while giving him oral sex.

Patterson was arrested by police after he messaged his daughter and a friend and seemingly admitted to a crime, saying he 'did something bad' and that he 'was so sorry' and had 'choked Francisca', but he now swears he didn't strangle her.

Patterson has sworn that he didn't deliberately kill Marguinez, whose body was found face down on their bed with semen stained tissues around it and showed no signs of trauma, but that she died pleasuring him.

However, her body had already began to decompose and so the coroner was unable to determine how she died.

Patterson has insisted that he shows the jury his penis or a mould of it be used as evidence in court and thinks they'll believe his version of events when they realise its size.

New footage of the Loch Ness monster has emerged online.

The mythical creature which inhabits Loch Ness in Scotland has been spotted by a YouTuber, who posted video footage of the monster's head and neck bobbing up and down in the choppy waters of the famous lake.

The footage shows a boat sailing past and not taking any notice of legendary Nessy.

Excited voices can be heard over on the video, shot on May 7, suggesting that there were other witnesses to the sighting other than the camera-person.
