XF 1.2 Redirect won't permanently delete

I deleted a redirect, bit it still shows as

This thread, started by xxxxxxx, has been deleted. Deleted by yyyyyy, 3 minutes ago.

In the dropdown when you click on edit, there was only one delete option, ie "deleted"

is there a way to permanently deleted the redirect.

NB: this was an import from vBulletin
