Salford schoolboy trader given suspension


A young entrepreneur who said he was inspired by The Apprentice has been suspended from his healthy eating school for a week for repeatedly selling sweets.

Tommie Rose, 12, said he made up to £200 a day selling chocolate and fizzy drinks to fellow pupils at Salford's Oasis Academy.

He was warned he was breaking a healthy eating policy, but continued to trade.

The school said it encouraged "entrepreneurialism" but the boy had breached school rules.
