Rescue wild deer with bigger space (6)


I believe the answer is:


'rescue' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'wild deer with bigger space' is the wordplay.
'wild' is an anagram indicator.
'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'bigger space' becomes 'em' (in printing, an em space is wider than an en space).
'deer' is an anagram of 'rede'.

(Other definitions for redeem that I've seen before include "Deliver from sin" , "Save, from hell or pawnbroker" , "Ransom" , "Regain possession in exchange for money" , "Make amends (for)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
