'Bar fight' MP to quit

AN MP suspended from the British Labour Party after being charged with assault is to stand down from parliament at the next general election.

Eric Joyce said he would not quit as MP for Falkirk immediately, but will not fight the election, expected in 2015.

Mr Joyce was charged with assault in connection with an alleged incident in an MPs' bar in the House of Commons.
