GLORIOUS skies filled with warming colours.

Images, such as this one in County Durham, are what early risers in the North East can see more of now the clocks have been put back.

Debate is ongoing over a new Daylight Saving Bill, which has received ministerial backing, which if it goes ahead it could bring the UK into line with Central European Time for a three-year trial.

That would mean lighter winter evenings, which supporters of the move claim would cut road deaths, boost tourism and reduce energy use.

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Discussions are under way across Whitehall and with the devolved authorities, but that’s the key.

“You can only do this if there is real national consensus and pressure between all the nations of our United Kingdom.”
