Grid 1212 barred grid with 180 symmetry.
Preamble Four clues are normal but their answers must be entered thematically; all the other clues contain an extra letter that must be deleted before solving. These letters in clue order spell out a definition of a word which must be highlighted in the completed grid (seven cells). This definition gives a hint as to how the answers to the four normal clues are affected by THE PURGE. Numbers in brackets refer to entry lengths; Chambers Dictionary (2016) is recommended.
