Ok, this should do it...Thanks for any guidance!

14(A) One cycling copper heads for Italian city (5): ?U?E? ( BUTEO )?
32(A) Cobblers like more than one round (5) : ???A?

28(D) Authoress in with Shaw (6):?S?LO?
18(D) Extraordinary linesman eats ordinary fruit (9): ?I?N?????
18 Anagram of Linesman with the usual Ordinary.

32 - Cobblers indicates a word for rubbish, nonsense + add a common two-letter word for Like, akin...

28 You have mistakes there.
Forget turin- was thinking of 1 turn but that ignores the copper
14a Cuneo
28 At wood ( a shaw is a wood)
4d At ten dance
14 One cycling = anagram it, after s standard two-letter 'copper'.
26(A) Pinter is the Nobelist...
Any suggestions, please, for 25(A) and 31 (D).
Question Author
26a looks like "Interact", but cannot parse it. Any help? Thanks!
31 down - A three letter non-British tree between A for American and E for European. The result is the alternative name for the white poplar.
26 Pinter, theatric Nobelist, drop the P, music term for 'quiet'. Act = Do. Interact = pause.
25 across - Usual abbreviation for our current monarch + a word for outdoor entrances gives a word for a worker ant (sometimes seen without S at the end)
There, looks like we've done just about the whole puzzle now! What a helpful site this is.
