Welcome to the sixth in our series of weekly puzzles.
This is the second by Radler – another of our rising stars.
This puzzle includes a mini-theme based on 13 down, but don’t worry if you can’t solve that one to start with, as all should become apparent later.
Add a comment to let me know how you’re getting on; your feedback is appreciated and always useful to a novice like myself.
