REMEMBER to put your clocks back an hour this weekend as British Summer Time (BST) officially ends.
* 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.
BST officially ends at 2am on Sunday, October 28.
Clocks should be put back an hour from 2am to 1am as the UK moves to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
This means an extra 60 minutes in bed on Sunday morning.
BST traditionally starts on the last Sunday in March and ends on the final Sunday in October.
When do the clocks change in 2013?
Clocks next go forward again on Sunday, March 31 at 1am, and will fall back an hour on Sunday, October 27.
In 2014, the clocks will change on Sunday, March 30 and Sunday, October 26 and the dates for 2015 are March 29 and October 25.
