Science Museum to turn back hundreds of clocks

As you put the clocks back this weekend, spare a thought for the Science Museum as British Summer Time ends. The museum has to wind back around 500 clocks by 2am on Sunday. The change means darker evenings and an extra hour of daylight in the morning.

Some MPs are still calling for an end to putting clocks back, calling it a "flawed ritual of plunging the UK into darkness by mid-afternoon".
