I was determined not to ask for help but I can study 23 across and 25 down for a week and I won't get them. Woking? Lowick? Knurl?
Help, please.

Oh, sorry, Mamya. I always assumed you were doing the same crosswords. 23a Clue is "grain mistake" and the answer is a place UK place name with a non-literal pronunciation. Are you with me?
I have -o-i--. The last letter will be the first of 25d "Spades thin out row" --u-l

I'm an idiot. I've given you the wrong clue. Ruislip was the answer to the one I've just given.

The one I need is "Sun dismissed lies from politicians" -0-I- - and the answer is a place name as previously stated. If "scull" is correct it would be - O - I - S.

The only place name I can find is a place called Boriss but can't even begin to work that out. (S)Tories certainly fits the basic clue if it were not for the place name.
Thank anyway, Mamya
