Runs in British city (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

bleeds

'runs' is the definition.
('bleed' can be a synonym of 'run')

'british city' is the wordplay.
'british' becomes 'b' (abbreviation e.g. in 'BBC').
'city' becomes 'leeds' (Leeds is an example).
'b'+'leeds'='BLEEDS'

'in' is the link.

(Another definition for bleeds that I've seen is "Loses blood".)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
