I intended that the upper part of the grid should use exactly the same mix of letters (same number of A’s, B’s, C’s etc) as the lower part, but as usual something has gone wrong. To fix the problem, one word in the top half of the grid needs to be changed – what is the original entry, and what is the replacement?

Solvers should provide both entries to enter the competition.

Solvers should submit the two entries, and nothing else, in the answer box below.  There is no need to send a completed grid or solution, or to explain your answer. Closing date for entries is midnight on July 27th 2019. The winner will receive their choice of any of the Telegraph Crossword Books. In the event of two or more entries being received from the same solver all of these entries will be disqualified, except that mistakes can be corrected by using the box below and clearly requesting that the earlier entry be withdrawn. The winner will be drawn at random from the correct entries. Editor’s decision is final.

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 be published after the closing date.
