2am is when clocks go back an hour to signal the end of British Summer Time


BRITISH Summer Time ends in the UK next weekend when clocks go 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?

British Summer Time (BST) will officially finish in the early hours of Sunday, October 27, 2013.

Clocks should be put back 60 minutes at 2am as the UK reverts to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

This means gaining an extra hour in bed on Sunday morning.

As a result of the change, there will be more daylight in the mornings, and evenings will be darker earlier.

BST traditionally starts on the last Sunday in March and ends on the final Sunday in October.

And when do the clocks go forward and back in 2014?

The dates for next year are March 30 and October 26.
