Riot distressed group (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

trio

Here is my best explanation:

'group' is the definition.

(a group of three)

'riot distressed' is the subsidiary indication.

'distressed' indicates anagramming the letters.

'riot' is an anagram of 'trio'.

This clue was last seen in Mirror
