Commotion in street - I run (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stir

Here is my best explanation:

'commotion' is the definition.

(stir is a kind of commotion)

'street i run' is the subsidiary indication.

'street' becomes 'st'.

'run' becomes 'r' (cricket abbreviation).

'st'+'i'+'r'='stir'

'in' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for stir that I've seen before include "Commotion - prison", "Agitation - prison", "Wake up - prison", "Agitate; wake from sleep", "Move around and mix thoroughly", "A slangy prison - whisk it", "Prison; agitation", "Move; wake", "Agitate - prison" and "Agitate - disturbance".)
