    Hi. Could you please explain 5 down in puzzle 1260. Got it, but don’t know why the answer works !
    The clue is; People lose their figurehead in a fortified village dance.
    Thanks so much

      Hi Trea…

      ‘people’ are FOLK and the head (first letter) of ‘figure’ is F. So remove the F to get OLK. Put that inside PA (a Maori fortified village) for a type of dance.

      I hope that is helpful!

      Hi Gerard…

      ‘overly ambitious’ is the definition. ‘get back up’ means reverse the letters of up – PU. Then ‘start suddenly’ is SHY – it’s a play on words as both ‘start’ and ‘shy’ can be synonyms in the sense of ‘jump back when startled’.

      I hope this helps!
