Macbook Pro - Can't delete user account

Dataquestuk asked
Last Modified: 2015-06-17
Trying to delete a user account through the user/groups panel in System Preferences in the normal way.

However. the "-" associated with the particular user is greyed out. (I think its because the Mac was previously on a domain)

When I check the Unique ID of the account it returns the value of 0 (the root account also has the value of 0)

How can I get rid of the account or at least change the Unique ID?
