Unable to delete missing custom report in Microsoft CRM

I have had to reinstall reporting services on our combined SQL 2005 / CRM server.

Have republished reports etc.

Have four custom reports which I have the rdl files for.

When I try and delete the existing reports (which are physically missing), I get

Web service request DeleteItem to Report Server http://zcrm1/ReportServer/ReportService2005.asmx failed with SoapException. Error: The item '/ORG NAME/4.0/{1beef935-5c41-de11-8682-0014221c6ce2}' cannot be found.

How can I delete an report item when it has actually already been physically deleted?

With thanks

CRM Diag log attached

Fixed my own issue!

Add the account 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE' to the reporting
services directory?
Go to http://yourserver/reports, press Show Details, Edit
the properties of the _MSCRM folder. Select security, add the NT AUTHORITY\
NETWORK SERVICE account, and give it rights 'Publisher for Microsoft CRM'. /  
You may need to give it "content manager" rights
IISRESET afterwards is required
