I know it's a bit late but any help gratefully received!
41 down - Breaks news (7) cryptic "As an afterthought,goes back,phones and wells up" I thought it might be streams or spreads but if so what is 55across? Seizes (5) "Stretches back and seizes" which could be grasp but letters don;t fit with 41 down, Thanks
