is R the full clue?
So am I clue please?
DRIVE = road

to go down = DIVE, river = R
Drive - 'R(un)'; operate, etc
the full clueis:-

Road to go down, crossing river (5)
You've missed out the clue -

Road to go down, crossing river (5)

The answer is Drive, road - Dive/to go down, with r for river inside.
My copy has the clue as shown by the OP

Thanks for that, Lie-In King. My paper copy has the full/correct version, do you have the online/subscribers' version?
Yes, I get the PDF from a friend - I'm pleased that my parse works for the truncated clue & gives the correct answer!

Some of us had a misprint online, then?
Seems so, although both clues parse differently for the same answer - editor's error, I suspect
My copy says....

So seems a few of us have the different clue.
