The unnamed Delicatessen Assistant was on the tills when Roy Cropper tried to buy a particular brand of Spanish strawberries. They were for an ill Hayley Cropper who was in her final days of terminal cancer and they were the only food that she found palatable. As a result, Roy was even more edge than usual and had already had a run-in with the Deli Manager when he thought they had run out of the item. Tyrone Dobbs had found a final punnet in another fridge but it wouldn't go through the till as it had passed it sell-by date. The manager told Roy they'd have to be destroyed, citing health and safety reasons, and refused to even give them to him for free. Roy ended up yelling at the man that they were for his wife who was dying of cancer. The manager was temporarily embarrassed but unmoved and threatened to call the police if Roy didn't leave, at which point he snatched the punnet and ran - straight into a pile of baskets, falling over and spilling the strawberries everywhere.
