Dome arena 'scrapped'

SOURCES close to the Millenium Dome project say the £60 million arena within the £800 million Dome has been scrapped.

The arena would have had the capacity to seat 12,000 spectators. But the source said the plug had now been pulled by the client, the New Millennium Experience.

The insider said: 'They realized it would be too expensive as a temporary feature.'

But minister without portfolio Peter Mandelson told Construction News there was 'no change in the plans'.
