Ministers have been accused of covering up a failed test of the Trident nuclear deterrent weeks before a crucial Commons vote on the future of the submarine-launched missile system.

Labour former defence minister Kevan Jones has demanded an inquiry into claims that the launch of an unarmed Trident II D5 missile from a British submarine off the coast of Florida in June malfunctioned.

On Saturday  it was reported the cause of the failure remained top secret but questions could be asked over the Government's failure to publicise the failed test weeks before MPs approved the ?40 billion Trident renewal programme in July.

Previous tests have been publicised by the Government.

Mr Jones said: "The UK's independent nuclear deterrent is a vital cornerstone for the nation's defence.

"If there are problems, they should not have been covered up in this ham-fisted way.

"Ministers should come clean if there are problems and there should be an urgent inquiry into what happened."

A Government spokesman told the Telegraph it had "absolute confidence" in the nuclear deterrent.

"The capability and effectiveness of the Trident missile, should we ever need to employ it, is unquestionable," she said.

"In June the Royal Navy conducted a routine unarmed Trident missile test launch from HMS Vengeance, as part of an operation which is designed to certify the submarine and its crew.

"Vengeance and her crew were successfully tested and certified, allowing Vengeance to return into service. We have absolute confidence in our independent nuclear deterrent.

"We do not provide further details on submarine operations for obvious national security reasons."

Britain's nuclear weapons deterrent Trident consists of four Vanguard-class submarines which can carry up to 16 Trident II D5 ballistic missiles, each armed with up to eight nuclear warheads.

In July MPs voted overwhelmingly to back renewing the Trident nuclear deterrent by 472 to 117.

It saw Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn suffer one of the biggest rebellion of his leadership as 140 Labour MPs supported renewal despite his opposition while just 47 voted against.

Britain has had a Continuous At Sea Deterrence (CASD) since 1969.At any time, one submarine is on patrol, one is undergoing maintenance, one is preparing for patrol and one has just come off patrol and is recovering.

Trident is currently based in the Faslane area of Scotland.
