I have identified 6 cells (their letters are omitted from wordplay) not the ''five cells'' given in the preamble. I can change one of the two unchecked entries - although wordplay suggests an omission - but this would still give 9 affected clues (one more than the preamble's required ''eight other clues''). The puzzle resolves well, but can the preamble be so wrong?

I'm sorted now!

40a Supplier to pub bar with early signs of growth (5) BREE? breed?
Is the 2nd O in 17a one of the 8? If so i have 6 cells ??
Question Author
the 'd' is wrong - 'bar w(ith)' = remove 'w' from a pub supplier.
Question Author
Yes, the final 'o' is one of the 5.
Question Author
... I made the mistake of counting the 'o' from 13ac which was very careless of me, because it's clearly clued and is checked by 3d (but once I'd made the mistake I didn't look at it again and concentrated on the unchecked entries instead!).
thanks ...ive done exactly the same....will correct now!
