With nights drawing in, many people will be wondering when British Summer Time officially ends, resulting in clocks going back an hour.

When the clocks change

* In spring, the clocks go forward, losing an hour – at 1am GMT the UK moves to 2am BST.

* In autumn, the clocks fall back, giving an extra hour – at 2am BST the UK moves to 1am GMT.

So when exactly do the clocks change this year?

British Summer Time (BST) traditionally starts on the last Sunday in March and ends on the final Sunday in October.

Therefore, clocks will go back an hour at 2am on Sunday, October 26, when BST ends and the country reverts to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

An easy way to remember when the clocks change each year is that they spring forward in March and fall back in October.

And when do the clocks go forward and back in 2015?

The daylight saving time date for next year is March 29 and BST ends on October 25.

And in 2016 the clocks change on March 27 and October 30.
