Hi, I've just finished the DT crossword but there's one clue I don't understand why the answer. I wonder if anyone could help?

14d Disease destroyed loving (12)

A?F?C??O?A?E

I've got affectionate, is that right?

Many thanks

Hi Paul.

It seems right. Apparently AFFECTION is a medieval word for 'disease' and ATE could be interpretated as meaning 'destroyed'.
