Can't delete old calender item in outlook

Hi there

I have a user that has a reocurring meeting setup by a user that left the company.

I have full access on the mailstore and can't delete the old item I get 'can't open this item'.

Any ideas on how I can get rid of this ?

Thanks

Open microsoft web access (company website's remote email). Locate the event, highlight, open the series, minimise the opened window, hold shift key, press delete cross along the top of the calendar.
