A futuristic Hyperloop transport system in the UK could slash journey times across the country with a trip from Edinburgh to London cut to just 29 minutes.

The mode of transport, first proposed by Elon Musk in 2012, is a system of tubes through which a pod could travel at high speeds of up to 600-plus miles per hour.
