Andre Spicer says his daughter burst into tears and said "I've done a bad thing" after council officers slapped her with the fine.

Oh i got angry and didn't read the full story, this is said at the end:

A spokeswoman for Tower Hamlets Council said the fine would be cancelled and an apology would be issued to Mr Spicer and his daughter.

She said: "We are very sorry that this has happened.

"We expect our enforcement officers to show common sense, and to use their powers sensibly.

"This clearly did not happen."

Surely the parent should have been hit with the fine for allowing his child to operate as an illegal trader?

To fine a five year old is ridiculous.

No not even the parent should be fined, FFS!!!

It's not as if the kid is going to make a career of this, she's 5 and maybe that's what she wanted to do so her dad let her! Neither should have been fined!

So what is the point of having trading laws then?

It's a kid, it's probably a one off. Common sense dictates!
