Maybe I just wasn't on Tramp's wavelength, but I found this really quite difficult in places and more than once wondered if I'd even finish!
But, finish I did and, as is so often the way, looking back it's difficult to see why it caused so any problems. I'll be interested to see what others made of it.
FOI was 12a followed by 3d but it was a good ten minutes before I was able to solve anything else.
If you do get stuck there's a couple of long anagrams in the downs but they require a bit of unpacking and there's also a straight anagram in the bottom half of the acrosses.
The clues that caused the most problems were 16d, 18d and 19d and, strangely, the short 24a.
COD - I was going to give it to the funny 11a but, having finally solved 16d, it has to be that.
If you find it as difficult as I did, you can ask on here for a hint - there are always people here willing to help.
Thanks to Tramp for a challenging but ultimately rewarding puzzle.
