Sequence

Sequence appeared in the July 2016 edition of "1 Across" as crossword no. 1734 in Issue 304.

The clues were all of the "normal" type, so there were no messages being generated from the clues themselves.  Instead, solvers had to deduce the unclued lights and the sequence they represented.

These were the most recent constituencies of the last five ex-prime ministers in reverse chronological order:

David Cameron          WITNEY
Gordon Brown            KIRKCALDY and COWBENBEATH
Tony Blair                   SEDGEFIELD
John Major                  HUNTINGDON
Margaret Thatcher      FINCHLEY


 

Finally, solvers were required to highlight the the most recent addition of MAIDENHEAD (Theresa May), which was hidden on a diagonal in the grid.
