Ali Neeson is overcome with guilt in the wake of Ronans death in Coronation Street. The tormented doctor pulled a stake from Ronan after the car crash and caused him to bleed to death. His actions were to protect his family but he is haunted by what he was pushed to do and decides that he is going to quit as a GP.
When Ronans mum Patti approaches Ali and thanks him for doing everything he could to help her son in his dying moments, he breaks down and later tells Michelle that he cant deal with the guilt anymore.
Getting drunk, he later confesses to Robert Preston that he killed Ronan and plans to go to the police to hand himself in. Robert talks him out of it and insists that he returns to GP training as he could save countless lives.
Ali takes his words on board and when Robert then offers him shifts at the bistro to occupy him while he waits for his suspension to lift, he is grateful for his and Michelles support.
But is this really the end of his torment – sooner or later the truth must come out?
