Firm hug can end upset (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

unchanged

Here is my best explanation:

'firm' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'hug can end upset' is the subsidiary indication.

'upset' is an anagram indicator.

'hug'+'can'+'end'='hugcanend'

'hugcanend' is an anagram of 'unchanged'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for unchanged that I've seen before include "Not altered", "Remaining in an original state" and "Unaltered".)
