Regeneration work on Whitley Bay's Spanish City Dome has stalled due to a lack of funding.
The iconic landmark, which fronted the Spanish City funfair for more than one hundred years, has been under reconstruction since 2005. It had been hoped the Grade II listed building could be restored and made into a hotel and apartments by 2014.
But North Tyneside Council, who were refused a £3.5 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund in April, says it cannot continue with the project until it receives further funding in December.
The dome opened in 1910 as a concert hall, restaurant and team room. It later became part of an amusement park and was given worldwide fame by the Dire Straits song 'Tunnel of Love' in 1981.
