Sunset in right time

In a “weird” way the sun sets in Paris both earlier and later than in London.
This is especially strange because the two cities aren*t very far from each other.
How could it be possible.?
Paris is in a time zone one hour ahead of London,
but geographically a little further east.
This means that the sunset actually reaches Paris before it reaches London,
even if it is at a time later than in England.
So it is already later when the sun goes down.
It’s really a kind of “weird” part of solar activity, manmade of course.
