Tiara got damaged by incendiary (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

agitator

Here is my best explanation:

'incendiary' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'tiara got damaged' is the subsidiary indication.

'damaged' is an anagram indicator.

'tiara'+'got'='tiaragot'

'tiaragot' with letters rearranged gives 'agitator'.

'by' is the link.

(Other definitions for agitator that I've seen before include "Person who stirs up trouble", "Fomenter of unrest", "Got tiara for a trouble-maker", "Political troublemaker", "Disturber of the peace", "He stirs things up, causes trouble", "Trouble-maker, he stirs things up", "One fomenting trouble", "Provocateur or rabble-rouser" and "Person stirring up public feeling".)
