See it's an awkward situation (4)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'see' is the first definition.
(to spot is to notice or catch sight of)

'an awkward situation' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

'it's' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for spot that I've seen before include "20 [MARK]" , "clock" , "Notice - fictional puppy" , "moral flaw" , "Small round mark" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
