Each number in the Code Breaker grid represents a different letter of the alphabet. In this week’s puzzle, 25 represents B and 19 represents C, so fill in B every time the figure 25 appears and C every time the figure 19 appears. Now, using your knowledge of the English language, work out which letters should go in the missing squares. As you discover the letters, fill in other squares with the same number in the main grid and the control grid.
