Observer 3869 6 December 2020. Help to parse the following please:
'Looks for problems, finding Russian cash, heroin, cocaine's all around (13)'. I've got Troubleshoots but can only partly parse it.
'Low-quality Spanish wine consumed by personnel (5-4)'. I've got Tenth-rate but no idea why.

Thanks in advance

Thanks all - couldn't find a connection between Toots and drugs anywhere. Never heard of a wine named Tent! Cheers once again.
