MP Eric Joyce Arrested After Airport Row

MP Eric Joyce is facing a breach of the peace charge after rowing with staff at Edinburgh Airport.

Mr Joyce was arrested in front of other travellers in the domestic arrivals area of the airport for allegedly being "abusive and confrontational".

It is understood the row on Sunday was sparked after the MP for Falkirk left a mobile phone on a plane and was not allowed to immediately retrieve it.
