A child's birthday party turns into a potential courtroom battle in Britain.

FOX News Radio's Simon Owen reports from London.

Five-year-old Alex Nash from Plymouth, England was supposed to be going to his schoolmate's birthday party at a dry ski slope. But, his parents realized he was double-booked and was supposed to be with his grandparents on the same day.

So, he missed the party.

A few weeks later, five-year-old Alex returning from school with an invoice handed over by the mother of the birthday boy... demanding around 25 dollars for what the bill calls... a "no-show fee". Alex's parents say they're being threatened with court if they don't pay.

The mother who sent the invoice saying Alex's parents should have let her know beforehand.
