Don’t forget the clocks go forward

People are being reminded that the clocks will go forward an hour this weekend.

The UK will switch to British Summer Time (BST) at 1am on Sunday morning, meaning people will lose an hour’s sleep.

The change will mean there is more daylight in the evenings but less in the mornings.

British Summer Time was suggested in 1907 by William Willett, a keen horse rider frustrated by the ‘waste’ of daylight in the early mornings during the summer. The current system has been in place since 1972.

BST will last until the clocks go back again in autumn on Sunday, October 25.
