Do you think there may be something causing her behavior? Any recent changes that could be considered huge by her? Maybe counseling could help, and they could at least give you the best advice on what to do for behavior like what your describing, im so sorry wish i could give a better answer, this is a tough one...

Not sure what you have available in the UK.  In the states, we have some boot camp type things for teens who are always in trouble.  Maybe you could check into something like that.

I am so sorry that you feel this way and that you are going through this alone.  I cant imagine how hard it is to have a teenager let alone one with ADHD and Tourettes.  

Have you talked to her doctor? Talk to them about your options and if they dont help you get a second opinion.  Please dont give up.  She cant control most of how she is feeling and there must be a reason why she is so angered.  

Have you tried talking to her when you are both calm?
