Is a broken tailgate an MoT failure?

I have a Hyundai i30 and the tailgate door wont open on the outside but does from inside. Is this an MOT failure?

It is not an MOT failure to have a boot that won't open, but the tester may refuse to test the vehicle if they are not able to access certain parts of the vehicle, such as the rear seatbelt mounts.
