Good morning, answers would be appreciated for 1 and 3, and confirmation for
2, 4, 5. Thanks in advance. I wrote to the Telegraph to report that the list of letters has not been sent.
Cryptic Connections
In a Cryptic Connections puzzle, five cryptic crossword clues must be solved; their answers can be made from the list of letters given underneath. Once all the clues have been solved, some letters will be unused; these can be arranged to give a word or phrase that links the answers to the five clues.
1 Almost disastrous, heading for right room (7)
2 Something sung in a state ... or two? (8) CAROLINA
3 Strike tramp (5)
4 Sound hooter with one inside (5) NOISE
5 Delight as pedant exposed (6) PANTED

To enter, please email the five clue answers and connection, together with your name and postal address and with a subject line of 'Newsletter', to [email protected], to arrive by 9am on Friday, November 19.

Good call. So Pound looks promising for 3
The Pink Pound.
I had to look up Pink Noise though
So, TICKLE for 5 - sTICKLEr
Another good one. TICKLE looks perfect
You're right, it's PINK bobbinwales - that's the lot.
...sorry - POUND!
Thuoght that maybe the competition would be cancelled for this week but my entry has been accepted.

No list of letters yet, but clue 5 is given as: 5 Delight as pedant exposed (6)
Thanks, but we were only querying the exact wording to see how you might of come up with PANTED which didnt seem to fit the printed clue. But its now been answered as TICKLE (delight) which fits the clue perfect
