Times Cryptic 28076

Solving time: 28 minutes with one unchecked letter wrong. Amazingly we have only one single anagram clue! Must surely be a first?

As usual definitions are underlined in bold italics, {deletions and substitutions are in curly brackets} and [anagrinds, containment, reversal and other indicators in square ones]. I usually omit all reference to positional indicators unless there is a specific point that requires clarification.

I didn't get the long anagram at 1ac until towards the end so worked round the grid finishing up in the NW. Last 3 were 1ac, 2dn and LOI 10ac which had a, to me, tricky definition. Still, it was all fun with a rash of anagrams and completed in 7:30 - good to see a fast time again.
