    22A in Claret’s puzzle produces a solution which is spelt incorrectly – a letter is doubled when it should’t be and another is singlified when it should be doubled. I failed to spot this when solving it myself; I can see how it’s happened; the incorrect spelling is included in a word list which crossword setters often use… (So is the correct spelling, it’s true…)

    Just logged in as I hoped someone else had come to the same conclusion about 22 across! Is it ok to submit the puzzle with the incorrect spelling?!

      I’ll have to check with the Editor 🙂
      Interestingly, several people have submitted it with the incorrect spelling and haven’t even noticed.
