Like Parris I think I'm losing the plot. 6D clue is "never known before". Got most of the letters and it looks obvious but I can't make the obvious fit!

Jaxzzgirl, thank you. I almost had money on you being the first to respond. It fits all the letters, and I'm sure you are right, and I don't have a dictionary with me on holiday to check, but.... I would have expected the clue to be "never done before" for the answer to be unprecedented..... still it's going in anyhow.

PS the online dictionary shows "never done or known before" so looks OK

Jazzgirl, Rossim, you're absolutely right. Never realised thay were there and so quick. Too attached to paper & real books!! I'm in Gran Canaria for next 10 days so really warm and sunny. Watching BBC news about follds and cold in UK..! Mum is doing well for her age after her hip replacement. Still driving (just) and still as sharp minded as ever. Just lacks a computer to get extra help from.

It's solving crosswords that has kept her mind sharp, no doubt. Let's hope it works for me !
