I have completed the grid but the word highlighted in green (which is the answer) doesn't make sense to me. I think the answer should be FIREBRAND but the numbered squares make the word FIRUBRAND which as far as I know is not even a proper word. Anyone got any idea???

Chambers says it can also be TORRET or TURRET....
Yes, but only 'tErret' enables 'firEbrand'
