A five year old girl was selling home made lemonade from a stall on the pavement when four (aye, 4) council bods from Tower Hamlets approached her and read out that she was trading without a licence and would be fined £150- £90 if paid early.
Clearly distressing the girl, the jobsworths then legged it.
Now that the story has hit the headlines, the council has cancelled the fine and will be contacting the girl and her father to apologise.
Shabby and embarrassing but I did chuckle at the girl's pricing structure. 50 pence for a small cup and £1 for a large. That makes the eyes water.
