Some Councils must put you must be a jobs worth in the application spec.

A five-year-old girl was reduced to tears after being handed a £150 fine for selling cups of lemonade to festival-goers.

Andre Spicer and his daughter set up a makeshift stall near their home in Mile End, east London, to sell 50p and £1 cups of fizzy drink to fans heading to last weekend’s Lovebox Festival.

Soon after, they were confronted by four enforcement officers from Tower Hamlets Council, who handed the pair a £150 fine for trading without a permit.

Mr Spicer, a professor at City University, said his five-year-old daughter burst into tears and said: “I’ve done a bad thing.”
