A TEACHER who helps people in Dorchester solve some puzzling questions has published a book.

Henry Howarth teaches beginners how to solve cryptic crosswords and runs courses at Age UK in Dorchester, as well as the U3A (University of the Third Age) in Bournemouth.

He has now published a book on the subject, Learn How to Solve Cryptic Crosswords: A Course for Beginners.

Henry recognises that many people regularly do quick crosswords but don’t know how to solve cryptic crosswords, although they would like to learn.

The teacher, who lives in Bournemouth, has taught over 50 beginners how to solve cryptic clues.

His book now aims to make learning easier by starting with the most simple types or cryptic clue and gradually building towards the more challenging aspects of solving cryptic puzzles.
