Boy led astray (3)


I believe the answer is:


'boy' is the definition.

'led astray' is the wordplay.
'astray' indicates an anagram.
'led' with letters rearranged gives 'DEL'.

(Other definitions for del that I've seen before include "Derek (dim.)" , "drew it" , "Mathematical symbol < , delegate" , "- Boy (Only Fools and Horses)" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
