Timezone for mysql timestamp

My client's site is hosted in the US, but is used exclusively by UK members.

One of their tables uses a timestamp to store the current date/time when a record is entered.

I have updated the php.ini to set the default timezone to Europe/London, but the timestamp in the database is still in EST.

Is there a way around this, or do I have to change the datatype to datetime and insert the current time, rather than use a timestamp ?
