So vain in organised trespass (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

invasion

Here is my best explanation:

'trespass' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'so vain in organised' is the subsidiary indication.

'organised' is an anagram indicator.

'so'+'vain'+'in'='sovainin'

'sovainin' anagrammed gives 'invasion'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for invasion that I've seen before include "Encroachment, intrusion", "Hostile incursion", "Attack", "Offensive", "Unwelcome intrusion", "Entry into foreign country to conquer it", "Encroachment by enemy", "Entry by force by an army", "Occupation" and "Encroachment by an army".)
