Never a Crossword Between Them

According to the Daily Mail (transformed for one day only into a respectable paper of record), Rebekah Brooks sent two senior Sun journos into the NotW offices to make sure that no jibes, whines or complaints where smuggled into the paper's last edition. However, their gaze naturally failed to linger on the crosswords, which were eventually published with such clues as:

BROOK
STINK
CATASTROPHE
DIGITAL PROTECTION
CEASE
LAMENT
CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE
MIX IN PRISON
STRING OF RECORDINGS
WOMAN STARES WILDLY AT CALAMITY

While the following featured amongst the answers:

DEPLORED
STATUS
STENCH
STIR
DISASTER
FIREWALL
MENACE
DESIST
RACKET
TART

A small act of revenge, of course, but I'm sure it was a sweet one.
