Due to the problems on the blog last week, here is our Monthly Prize Puzzle a week late.  Why not have a go at it?

The winner will receive their choice of any of the Telegraph Crossword Books.

Please note that, due to punitive postal charges, while the competition is open to all, the prize is only available to UK solvers.

A review will follow after the closing date (27th July 2019).

The puzzle is available by clicking on the above grid.

Please read the instructions carefully.

I’ve left this post open for comments, but if you don’t want your comment to be deleted then do not provide any help for other solvers or mention any detail about the puzzle, especially references to individual clues, until after the closing date.

  1. In retrospect I wondered whether a good dose of lateral thinking could have saved me a lot of work – but I guess I would still have needed to confirm the answer.
    I don’t want to count letters and ‘do sums’ again for quite a while – my printed sheet is a sight to behold!

    Very well thought out, Phibs, I really enjoyed the challenge.

  2. I always look forward to a Phibs’ puzzle. You know it will be challenging and you know it will be enjoyable. This one was no exception.

    Well done, Phibs, and thank you.

  3. Well, I have an answer but I’m still scratching my head on a couple of them and await the review with interest. Thank you Phibs for some great entertainment.
