Removing dead Distribution Points from SCCM

Hi guys,

We have in our SCCM 2007 R3 environment an old Distribution Point from a server that was removed/rebuilt.

Unfortunately packages still show this though its status is Unknown.
I'd like to remove this but at the moment this is not working. On some packages I get an option to delete it under Distribution Points, on others it doesn't give me that option.

My question is - without going into the Database and deleting it manually, is there a way to do this in the SCCM ConfigManager?

I want to minimise as much damage as I know that the database is precious. The distribution point in question is part of a Child Site under the Primary site...

Any help would be appreciated?
