REMEMBER to put your clocks back an hour tonight (Saturday) as 2012 British Summer Time comes to an end in the UK.

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.

British Summer Time (BST) officially ends at 2am on Sunday, October 28, when clocks fall back 60 minutes.

Clocks should be put back an hour to 1am as the UK reverts to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

This means gaining an extra hour 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?

BST will start in 2013 on Sunday, March 31 and clocks will go back again on Sunday, October 27.
