Simon Harris.

Quite a solve of two halves for me this week. In the first sitting I managed a grand total of one clue solved, the very accessible 20ac.

Simon Harris.

A fairly tough week, I think, judging by the amount of cheating I had to do towards the end. 3dn still evades my best attempts to explain it.
