The clocks go back on Sunday (October 25) as British Summer Time Ends.

We all gain an hour at 2am as the clocks turn back to 1am when the country reverts to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Traditionally the clocks go forward on the last Sunday in March and back on the last Sunday of October.

Next year the clocks change on March 27 and October 30.

Essex fire service is using the change to remind people to test their smoke alarms.

Divisional officer Neil Fenwick said: “It will only take a minute to test the smoke alarms in your home and then you’ll know that you and you’re family are protected.

“Ideally we should all test our smoke alarms once a week but we know that not everyone remembers so moving the clocks back an hour this weekend is the perfect reminder. Only a working smoke alarm will save your life so take our advice and take the time to test yours this Sunday.”
