Solving time: 13 mins

* = anagram

ACROSS

7 T (OUCH) UP Put = set (reversed). Clever misleading context as the “improve slightly” in the definition has nothing to do with a medical condition.

10 GEN DER (red reversed) Information can often be gen.

11 GEORGE HARRISON (of the Beatles) (Ogre – he’s roaring)*

14 MANTRA(p)

17 CHANGE OF COURSE Which in crossword language could mean – make an anagram of it and get Crusoe. Definition is “new strategy”

19 CO PIER Firm = company (co) – a crossword staple.

22 S(QUIN)T

DOWN

1 ROOFER Cryptic definition punning on “top”

2 HUNGER MARCHERS

5 RED HEAD As was (and maybe still is) Neil Kinnock, former leader of the Labour Party.

8 HANDSET Cryptic definition – the clue’s length at first suggesting something entirely different.

17 Peter CROUCH – Attacking player for Liverpool FC

18 UN(i)T RUE Section = unit
