A campaign has been launched to restore the outdoor pool in Tynemouth back to its former glory.
The Friends of Tynemouth Outdoor Pool has been set up by campaigners hoping to save the derelict lido. Almost 10,000 people are now involved in a Facebook campaign to bring the pool back.
The campaigners are hoping to submit plans in January.
The Lido opened in May 1925 and quickly became one of the most popular venues on the North East coast.
