Finish back in Widnes (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

end

'finish' is the definition.
(I know that finish can be written as end)

'back in widnes' is the wordplay.
'back' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'in' indicates a hidden word.
'dne' is hidden in the letters of 'widnes'.
'dne' backwards is 'END'.

(Other definitions for end that I've seen before include "scrap" , "target" , "SECOND PART OF 24" , "Finished" , "Climax" .)
