Temperature sent haywire in accommodation (5)


I believe the answer is:


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

'temperature sent haywire in' is the wordplay.
'temperature' becomes 't' (abbreviation).
'haywire' indicates anagramming the letters.
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'sent' with letters rearranged gives 'tens'.
't' going within 'tens' is 'TENTS'.

(Other definitions for tents that I've seen before include "Canvas shelters" , "Temporary shelters" , "Portable shelters" , "Accommodation" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
