Runs in British city (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

bleeds

Here is my best explanation:

'runs' is the definition.

('bleed' can be a synonym of 'run')

'british city' is the subsidiary indication.

'british' becomes 'b' (abbreviation e.g. in 'BBC').

'city' becomes 'leeds' (Leeds is an example).

'b'+'leeds'='bleeds'

'in' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

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