CLOCKS go forward an hour later this month as 2013 British Summer Time starts in the UK.

So when do the clocks change this year?

British Summer Time (BST) will start in the early hours of Easter Sunday, March 31.

Clocks should be put forward 60 minutes at 1am as the UK moves out of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

This means losing an hour in bed on Easter Sunday morning.
