It’s that time again - make sure you remember to put your clocks forward one hour this evening.

The clocks go one hour forward on Sunday, March 29 at 1am, heralding in the lighter nights and hopefully better weather as spring gets underway.

The clocks go back again in autumn on Sunday, October 25.

The hour changes in spring and autumn in an attempt to make the most of the light.

The current system has been in place since 1972, proposals to keep the clocks at least one hour ahead of GMT all-year round have been debated frequently in parliament but never implemented.
