Tool found in ditch is electronic (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

chisel

Here is my best explanation:

'tool' is the definition.

(chisel is a kind of tool)

'in ditch is electronic' is the subsidiary indication.

'in' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.

'chisel' is hidden in the letters of 'ditch is electronic'.

'found' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for chisel that I've seen before include "Cutting tool used with hammer", "Tool for the carpenter", "Hammered cutting tool", "It can be cold in the workshop", "Woodworking tool", "Wood, stone or metal-cutting tool", "Carpenter's or mason's tool", "Carpenter's tool for shaping wood", "Tool for shaping wood or metal" and "Sculpting tool".)
