Time updated by ntp is 1 hour behind

Hi Guys,
Whenever I use ntptimeset -s to update my time the clock is always set 1 hour behind. I think it's something to do with British Summer Time. My time zone is Europe/London. How do I make ntp set the clock right or make a script to change the time after it has been updated.

Thanks in Advance

Which NTP server are you connecting to?

What is your computer's local time?

Can you post your ntp.conf?

Thanks for your help but I have fixed the problem myself. My timezone wasn't set properly and I had to add the line
TZ='Europe/London'; export TZ
to my ~/.bashrc

Thanks Anyway
