Solution for 24 August cryptic crossword clue



See crushed ice does (7)
Solution – Diocese


If you "crush" the letters in "ice does" ie, scramble them up, you can come up with "Diocese" – the tricky part is that "see" in the clue is meant in the religious sense ie the group of parishes that make up the diocese overseen by a bishop.  There are so many other possible meanings for "see".
