Make a mistake and trip (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

errand

Here is my best explanation:

'trip' is the definition.

(errand is a kind of trip)

'make a mistake and' is the subsidiary indication.

'make a mistake' becomes 'err' ('err' can be a synonym of 'make a mistake').

'err'+'and'='errand'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for errand that I've seen before include "Short trip to perform required task", "Commission, task", "Short trip with a mission", "An ...... of mercy is a journey to relieve distress", "Short journey to get or bring", "Task, message", "Delivery/collection trip", "Commission, message", "Journey to deliver message etc" and "Mission (often run)".)
