Hold-up (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

delay

'hold-up' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for delay that I've seen before include "Hold back" , "Postponement" , "Put off until later" , "Stoppage" , "hold-up of train?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent, the Sydney Morning Herald, The Telegraph and The Irish Independent.
