£10k for man who slipped on grape
Saturday 04 June 2011
A shopper has won a £10,500 pay-out after slipping on a grape in a branch of Asda.
The company apologised for failing to meet its own "high standards" following the ruling at Peterborough County Court, which ordered that Asda pay Thomas Wardle £10,500 damages and £18,000 in legal costs following the incident at a Peterborough store three-and-a-half years ago.
Asda has said there are at least two more cases relating to the same shop which are expected to be brought to court this summer, but denied that there was an issue with cleanliness at the store. A spokesman said: "We have thorough processes in place to ensure our store floors are kept clean."
