A five-year-old girl London was fined £150 ($194) a local government London for selling 50p (65 cents) cups of lemonade. The fine upset the little girl because she thought she had done something wrong. The girl's father, Andre Spicer, is a university professor. He said his daughter set the stall a street in London. She wanted to sell her lemonade to people who were their way to a music festival. Mr Spicer said his daughter burst into tears. He said she told him: "I've done a bad thing". Mr Spicer said his daughter was very excited the idea of setting a lemonade stall near her house. He said: "She just wanted to put a smile people's faces. She was really proud herself."

Mr Spicer explained what happened to make his daughter cry. He said: "After a short time trading, four enforcement officers walked over the other side the road. I was quite shocked. I thought that they would just tell us to pack and go home, but they turned their mobile camera and began reading from a big script explaining that she did not have a trading licence. My daughter clung to me screaming 'Daddy, Daddy, I've done a bad thing.' She's five. We were then issued a fine £150. We packed and walked home." A local government spokesman said: "We are very sorry that this has happened….The fine will be cancelled immediately and we have contacted Mr Spicer and his daughter to apologise."
