Shout out to Tower Hamlets Council in London, which sent not one or even two but FOUR “enforcement officers” to shut down a 5 year olds lemonade stand.
They slapped her and her father with a 150 pound fine for trading without a permit. The girl burst into tears and her father packed up the stand and went home.
“We are very sorry that this has happened” a spokesperson for Tower Hamlets Council told media.
“We expect our enforcement officers to show common sense, and to use their powers sensibly. This clearly did not happen.”
