'Have you ever seen such gross disrespect?': Judge blasts 'spoiled' US cheerleader, 18, suing parents to support her after she ran away - who claims they were behind her bulimia and that her father showed her 'inappropriate affection'

 Rachel Canning turned up to Morris County Court, New Jersey, today dressed in her school uniform and pearls for the first hearing in her sensational case against her parents who she claimed 'abandoned' her and owe her money. But her hopes were dampened when Judge Peter Bogaard read an expletive-laden and vicious answerphone message left by Rachel, from Lincoln Park, New Jersey, to her mother, Elizabeth, and said: 'Have you ever in your experience seen such gross disrespect for a parent? I don't see it in my house.' Rachel, who is suing her parents for 'abandoning' her has made sensational claims that her mom calling her 'fat' and 'porky' led to her suffering bulimia and that her former police chief father dad used to get her drunk and kiss her inappropriately. The judge denied any immediate claim for cash and adjourned to a later date - but warned her there appeared to be insufficient evidence to support her claims so fa

Britain wakes to a frosty, clear morning of fire and ice - but it's going to be HOTTER than the Greek Islands this weekend with temperatures set to rise to 18C in welcome warm spell at last

Gunmen seize city council in Iraq's Samarra

Hostages taken and more than 20 people injured as armed group seizes the city council headquarters of the Iraqi city.
Samarra has received people fleeing from violence in nearby Fallujah 
Armed men wearing military uniform have seized the city council headquarters in the Iraqi city of Samarra and taken employees hostage, the second such attack in recent months, police and witnesses said.
At least three policemen were killed in Tuesday's attack, while 25 policemen and eight civilians were wounded, including the deputy head of the city council, Ammar Ahmed, said Omar al-Obeidi, a doctor at Samarra hospital.
Two fighters, possibly wearing explosives-rigged vests or belts, seized the city council building with an unknown number of employees inside, security officials said.
"The gunmen are in the council building," Police Lieutenant Dhafir Ahmed said, according to Reuters news agency.
"Local council employees and court employees are trapped inside."
Clashes broke out between the fighters and security forces, and a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle near police and militia forces when they arrived at the scene.
The attack in Samarra follows a similar incident in Tikrit, another city in the central Salaheddin province, where fighters detonated a car bomb and seized the city council headquarters on December 16.
Security forces ultimately freed the Tikrit hostages, but a city council member and two police were killed.
Escalating violence
The attack illustrates the impunity with which fighters in Iraq can strike even targets that should be highly secure.
Violence in Iraq has reached a level not seen since 2008, when the country was just emerging from a brutal period of sectarian violence in which tens of thousands died.
More than 1,750 people have been killed in attacks and clashes in Iraq since January 1, according to AFP figures based on security and medical sources.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki says the upsurge is a spillover from the civil war in neighbouring Syria but critics say his own policies are at least partly to blame for reviving an insurgency that climaxed in 2006-07.
