Starting with clue No 1, fill in the grid in a clockwise direction with four-letter words, working your way to the centre of the spiral puzzle. The last letter of each word becomes the first letter of the next. If you have correctly filled in the grid, there should be a seven-letter keyword reading across from clue No 8.
