Clear I’d got wrapped up in incident (7)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'clear' is the definition.
('evident' can be a synonym of 'clear')
'i'd got wrapped up in incident' is the wordplay.
'got wrapped up in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'incident' becomes 'event' (I've seen this before).
'id' put within 'event' is 'EVIDENT'.
(Other definitions for evident that I've seen before include "Plain to see", "Conspicuous", "Clear to see", "Quite obvious and clear", "Plain, obvious, clear", "Apparent or obvious", "Comprehensible - manifest", "Clear and obvious", "Quite obvious, easy to see" and "Obvious, may be plainly seen".)
