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


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?

The branches page cache doesn't immediatly catch up. It usually does within a day though. Please follow this issue for a resolution:
