Eric Joyce involved in 'margins of the fracas'

What I said in the very first instance when I put a small, or probably too large release out over the internet, it turned out to be essentially the truth and the fact is there's no further action.

I don't feel particularly joyous about that. I was involved in the margins of the fracas and clearly it was the first time I had been back in a bar for over a year.

That was a shame. But the fact is the police have looked at it now for two weeks and there is to be no further action.
