Desert street (6)
I believe the answer is:
This clue is a double definition.
'desert' is the first definition.
(I know that strand is a more specific form of the action desert)
'street' is the second definition.
(I know that Strand is a street)
(Other definitions for strand that I've seen before include "Leave helpless - single thread" , "Lock of hair" , "Leave helpless - London street" , "Leave aground -- length of thread" , "Drive (ship) aground" .)
