Sorry, what is wrong with that? Assuming you grabbed that output just before posting, it is also consistent with the message timestamp (UTC+1).
UTC is equivalent to GMT (Solar time, London). CEST is 2 hours ahead. That is what is shown.
Have I missed something?

It looks like you have misunderstood what UTC is. UTC is Greenwich Mean Time, i.e. the time at London, not including daylight savings time. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinat ... ersal_Time
