Travelodge has unveiled its second generation mobile hotel room.

Following trials of the prototype last year the Travelpod has undergone a redesign.

The mobile room, which can be transported by truck and trailer to any location in the UK, such as a sporting event or music festival, is 40% bigger than the original.

Sealed in a clear polycarbonate box, the Travelpod features all the hotel comforts guests expect, including air conditioning and a flat screen TV.

The room also features a bathroom with a biodegradable toilet and a washbasin with running water.

The furniture is made from recycled timber and the room is designed to use low wattage bulbs.

The Travelpod will undergo further testing over coming months.
