Strayed (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

erred

'strayed' is the definition.
('err' can be a synonym of 'stray')

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for erred that I've seen before include "Made mistakes" , "Gone astray!" , "Went astray" , "slipped up" , "was inaccurate" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard, The Sun and The Telegraph.
