A five-year-old in London was fined for selling lemonade. The fine upset her. She thought she did something wrong. Her father said his daughter set up her stall on a street near her home. She wanted to sell lemonade to people going to a music festival. The little girl burst into tears and said: "I've done a bad thing". The little girl was excited to sell her lemonade. Her father said: "She just wanted to put a smile on people's faces. She was really proud of herself."

The father explained what happened. He said four government workers walked over to the stall. They started filming the stall on a camera. Then they read something from a paper about not having a trading licence. The little girl then said: "Daddy, Daddy, I've done a bad thing." The workers fined the father and his daughter. The local government apologised to the little girl and said: "The fine will be cancelled immediately."
