Peterborough - UK supermarket Asda has been forced to pay out £28,500 ($46,629) after a shopper slipped on a grape at the Rivergate store in Peterborough.
Although the incident took place back in January 2008, there was a recent ruling at Peterborough County Court.
The victim, Thomas Wardle, was awarded £10,500 ($17,179) in compensation, while Asda was also required to pay £18,000 ($29,450) in legal costs.
An Asda spokesman said: ''We have thorough processes in place to ensure our store floors are kept clean to prevent anyone from slipping or falling."
A subsidiary of Wal-Mart, Asda is the second-largest (behind Tesco) supermarket in the UK, with market share of 16.9%.
