Members of Falkirk Constituency Labour Party have said that if allegations of assault are proven against MP Eric Joyce then he will be expected "to do the right thing".

The statement was made after a meeting of the party in which Falkirk MP Mr Joyce's future was discussed.

The 51-year-old has been charged with three counts of common assault following an incident in the House of Commons last Wednesday.

Chairman of Falkirk constituency party, Martin Murray, said: "Falkirk expects and deserves the best representation and highest standards of behaviour from its elected representatives. If the recent alleged events are proven then we expect Mr Joyce to do the right thing."
