It's that time of the year again when the clocks go back one hour, and the evenings get darker earlier.

The clocks will 'fall back' at 2am tomorrow - which means all clocks revert to 1am at that time.

It also means an extra hour in bed for those who relish a weekend lie-in.

And the old line to trigger your memory for the different seasons and reset your watch is: "Spring forward, fall back."
