TEENAGER Rosa King last night hit back at online bullies and defended her decision to become a phone sex line worker.

The 18-year-old, who was brought up by wealthy parents and educated at a posh boarding school, featured in a Channel 4 documentary in which she admitted funding her university studies by taking X-rated premium-rate calls.

Rosa’s parents were horrified by her confession on last Monday’s programme My Phone Sex Secrets.

And former classmates have started an online hate campaign, condemning “dirty Rosa”.

But the shy maths student claims working on the sex lines has boosted her confidence.

A fresh bid for a new lap dancing club in central Dundee has been thrown out by councillors over fears it could increase crime in the area.

The application, spearheaded by Stars Sports Bar, run by local businessman Jimmy Marr, wanted to change the use of Mangos Nightclub in the Seagate into an adult entertainment venue.

However, Katherine Sharp of the action group Dundee Violence Against Women Partnership voiced her strong opposition to the ''undesirable'' development.

In a statement delivered to Dundee City Council's development management committee she warned the move would result in an over-provision of adult entertainment venues in the city and could create a problem with prostitution in the surrounding area.

She continued: ''Lap dancing is harmful to the women involved. They are often verbally abused by men and propositioned for sex. Support of this application would be contrary to the council's duty to protect women and goes against its equality policy as it would support one gender over another.''
