Cannot delete branch in BitBucket that was created and merged via Pull Request (with close option)

So I created a branch from within Jira OnDemand that appeared on BitBucket as expected

I finished work, pushed work to BitBucket and then created a pull request.

I merged the pull request with the option to close the branch and locally I ran the following and got what was expected.

$ git fetch --prune

From bitbucket.org:company/repo

x [deleted] (none) -> origin/DEVOPS-27-xxxxx

However when I looked at the branches tab the branch is still listed and I cannot delete it and when I click the branch it takes me to a 404??

Why is this please?

Lee,

The branches page cache doesn't immediatly catch up. It usually does within a day though. Please follow this issue for a resolution: https://bitbucket.org/site/master/issue/8342/deleted-branch-still-listed-bb-9455
