Disgraced MP Eric Joyce has spoken of the night when he went "on the rampage" in a Commons bar, describing fighting as his "hobby".

In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, Joyce said he hit fellow politicians who tried to restrain him because they "presented targets". He resigned from the Labour Party after being convicted of four counts of assault in February.
