Sweden put the clocks back an hour on Saturday night to winter time. Sweden will now be at GMT+1 until the spring.

European Union countries now change the clocks on the same day, in order that timetables work and that people working across borders are not inconvenienced.

The change means it will get light earlier in the morning and dark earlier in the evening. In Stockholm on Sunday, sunrise was at 6.59am and sunset at 16.05pm.
