Hi,
clue is : Good amusing piece (Express leader). Answer is 3 letters, U _ E. Pretty certain these letters are correct. Does anyone have any ideas for me please. THese little words are always the trickiest.
Much appreciated.
Thanks.

I did think it might be ESCALATE, but it would mean your 'O' would be an 'A'. Any possibility of this?
Cheers.

I went for Use in the end. US being a piece of amusing - and then the E as in Express leader. Big vague, but ill find out on Sunday.
