Britons now spend more time using technology than they do sleeping, new research suggests.
The study, by communications regulator Ofcom, found the average UK adult spends eight hours and 41 minutes a day on media devices compared with sleeping eight hours and 21 minutes per night.
When multi-tasking on different devices such as watching television and texting at the same time, the average adult spends 11 hours and seven minutes per day using technology - an increase of more than two hours since 2010.
Research also found that Britons are reaching their peak understanding of digital technology at the age of 14 to 15.
