For crossword boffins:

Post by Charlie Hastings » Sun Apr 22, 2012 7:16 pm

From Saturday's i newspaper.. the last 2 I couldn't get. :evil:

People in good faith attending robberies (8) _ T _ E _ S _ S

Like highly driven person, start autobiography (4,1) T _ P _ , A <= if the last letter's not A then I'm worse off than I think

Anyone help ? The paper doesn't print the answer for another week (it's a prize one) and I'll have recycled it (notice that) and forgotten about it before then, but it's bugging me tonight!

First one is ATHEISTS, as in AT HEISTS.

Second one is TYPE A :D

Brilliant! Thank you so much - I'd found it a difficult crossword.

Mars bar or two on the way if I win the competition :D
