Recede (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ebb

'recede' is the definition.
(ebbing is a kind of receding)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for ebb that I've seen before include "recession" , "Withdraw heartless" , "(Of tidewater) recede" , "(Sea) recede" , "Tidal retreat" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun, the Penny Press, the Universal, the Evening Standard, the LA Times, The Star Tribune, The Independent, the King Feature Syndicate, The New York Times and The Mirror.
