Stop temper in place at risk (8)


I believe the answer is:


'place at risk' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'stop temper' is the wordplay.
'stop' becomes 'end' (synonyms).
'temper' becomes 'anger'.

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for endanger that I've seen before include "Jeopardize" , "Threaten" , "Expose to injury or extinction" , "Put in jeopardy" , "Place into peril, jeopardise" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
