The European Union have confirmed that they will scrap the biannual changing of the clocks following a public vote.

In a move that will see most of the content remain on the same time all year round, the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the current law which has been in place since 1996 will be scrapped.

Mr Juncker said the decision was made after 4.6 million people from all across the continent decided to vote on the issue.

It is understood an overwhelming 84% decided to scrap the law which sees clocks being changed every March and October.

Mr Juncker said the current system must be changed as the people have spoken.

It is expected the results of the vote will be put forward to all European member states and the European Parliament.
