Once inside, I can't move and that's wrong (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

inexact

Here is my best explanation:

'wrong' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'once inside i can't move' is the subsidiary indication.

'once' becomes 'ex'.

'inside' is an insertion indicator.

'move' is an anagram indicator.

'i'+'cant'='icant'

'icant' is an anagram of 'inact'.

'ex' inserted into 'inact' is 'inexact'.

'and that's' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for inexact that I've seen before include "not wholly Right", "Rough", "Not quite right", "woolly", "Imprecise - inaccurate in", "Lax", "Not precise, approximate", "Nice tax (anag) - approximate", "Nice tax (nag.)" and "loose".)
