Well done Bee, I should have got that one. Alecia Keyes was the first name I thought of when I saw the clue about access to digs, but I couldn't link Alecia to Sefton Park. If I had googled 'Alecia Sefton park' then the answer was there. All ifs and maybe's, :roll: :roll:

Well done again Bee

run........
a mission................ task/job/church/monastery/franciscan/benedictine
DC patch...........................District of Columbia/Comics/Gotham/Metropolis
