The Russian cargo vehicle Progress has failed to dock with the International Space Station after an apparent electronics failure.

There was a failure of "telemetry", effectively the radio contact needed to complete the docking, Nasa said.

The spaceship was carrying food, fuel and other supplies.

Unconfirmed reports quoting a Russian cosmonaut, Alexander Skvortsov, said the cargo vehicle was spinning out of control away from the space station.
