Thanks everybody for your help

I have settled on TRAP for 15A and MALE for 17A

I've seen DAVE suggested for this elsewhere..

D for 500 and AVE for 4 down, the answer to which is NONDESCRIPT

Yes, I think both DAVE and MALE are possibles but they are both a bit tenuous !
I have settled for MALE - created = MADE swapping 50 (L) for D (504 down)

I am not impressed with the compilers clues - I usually find myself putting in an answer without being able to explain it ! - I wish he would explain this one to me !!

To be perfectly honest I think the clues in the Express skeleton crossword are consistently dreadful

I've been trying to work out why AVE = NONDESCRIPT. I've just twigged that it's an abbreviation of AVERAGE.

(Insert little smiley thing of me hitting myself on the forehead)

He created, being 504 down.
If it is Dave then, why the "created, being" part of the clue?
